The Colorado Public Utilities Commission (PUC) recently approved a Colorado Energy Plan that attempts to substitute wind power for coal power. CFACT has petitioned the PUC to reconsider this ill-advised decision.
The war on energy moves to the states.
Xcel energy claims that wasting billions will save Coloradans money. CFACT student pollsters found that students see through this nonsense.
Why did the U.S. Fish and Wildlife Service waste over 100 million taxpayer dollars to save the Preble's meadow jumping mouse from extinction when the little critters are alive and well from Colorado to Alaska?
Greg Walcher, a former secretary of the Colorado Department of Natural Resources, argues that forests provide the world’s greatest resource for cleaning CO2 out of the atmosphere. Rotting and fires themselves emit greenhouse gases, but atmospheric CO2 makes all plants grow faster and better and with improved tolerance to drought. Thus, it is vital that the U.S. must reverse policies that oppose logging, tree thinning, and other management necessary for healthy forests.
Hydraulic fracturing operations in Western Colorado are having “little to no impact” on local wildlife, according to a new report by state regulators.
Wealthy anti-fracking zealots created a petition campaign to try to shut down the entire oil and gas industry in Colorado -- but say little about the costs of their extreme proposals.
CFACT Advisor Marita Noon highlights the failure of anti-fracking activists to generate wide-scale support despite flying in super-activist Bill McKibben and spending a boatload of billionaire Tom Steyer's money. Their petition drive has apparently failed to get two vaunted initiatives onto the November ballot there.
Studies confirm fracking is safe for groundwater, yet the Left falsely asserts fracking contaminates water supplies. Their real goal is to shut down our most reliable energy supplies.
EPA workers made at least two major mistakes when they intentionally penetrated Gold King Mine in August 2015: The agency-led crew didn’t test for pressure in the mine mouth and mistakenly dug at the bottom, rather than the top of the mine.
Will the real Gwen Lachelt please step down? That’s no wisecrack, but a very serious question in Colorado because she’s using a position of political influence to strategically devastate the state’s petroleum industry – and saying otherwise.
Big Green money is working to thwart fracking in Colorado. Their ploy? Pretend to be local.
CFACT Advisor Marita Noon points to a primary election in New Mexico as the impetus for Colorado Democrats to back away from legislation to curtail hydraulic fracturing (fracking), a measure that would hurt Colorado's economy and quite likely the chances for Democrats there to win elections this fall. Cynical? You betcha! If they should win in November, will these measures be back on the table?
Yet another effort to take away the mineral wealth of the United States in looming in Colorado, thanks to Sen. Mark Udall. Even worse, the Obama Administration could just speak the Browns Canyon National Monument and Wilderness Area into being, just as President Clinton robbed Utah of much of its mineral wealth via the Grand Staircase-Escalante National Monument.
