Captain America has made a Colorado connection — well, sort of.

Marvel actor Chris Evans sat down with Gov. Jared Polis on Wednesday (March 23) to chat about climate change in the Centennial State.

The conversation was part of A Starting Point (ASP), Evans' company dedicated to creating "a bipartisan channel of communication and connectivity between Americans and their elected officials." ASP co-founder Mark Kassen joined in as well.

The trio started by discussing wildfires in Colorado, prompting Evans to question Polis about his other climate concerns.

"When wildfires hit, they denude entire mountains and hills of all their trees and all their vegetation. What does that mean? Landslides when the rains come," Polis told Evans, referencing last year's mudslides in Glenwood Canyon. "Floods, fires, and then drought would be the other one."

Polis touched on the drought's effect on local ranchers, pointing to climate action as a solution — specifically, he noted that the Centennial State hopes to be 100% reliant on renewable energy by 2040.

Regarding rising gas prices in the U.S., Polis spoke about the possible benefits of electric vehicles.

Despite his celebrity status, Evans revealed that he is also a fan of Colorado politics, calling Polis "one of his favorite speakers."
