Natural gas and oil touch nearly every aspect of life in Colorado – with responsible, well-regulated development that protects the environment and public health, creating jobs and opportunity while providing significant support for public services, including the state’s education system. That’s the broad message contained in a new report, “Progress and Opportunity,” just released by American Petroleum Institute.

Jack Gerard is bullish on the oil and gas industry and its role in the the energy and manufacturing future. He would be, of course, because he is <a href="http://www.api.org/about/president-and-ceo" target="_blank">president and CEO</a> of the American Petroleum Institute, the oil and gas industry’s comprehensive trade group and lobby shop. Gerard was in Denver this week to touch base with Colorado, one of the top ten oil and gas producing states in the nation, an anchor state of the American west and a top conservation and clean energy state. Colorado is a laboratory of innovation in energy production, use and regulation. It’s also a political swing state. A man like Jack Gerard can’t stay away too long.

In an appearance at an energy industry event on Thursday, Gov. John Hickenlooper was a study in moderation, fielding questions on hot-button topics that have charged state politics for all of his time in office. He put on a kind of clinic in how to walk a center line on the issues, even when leveling a cautionary note against the urge in the era of one-party Republican rule in Washington to steamroll long-targeted rules and regulations on the fossil fuel industries. “In the next few months, how do we keep the momentum moving forward… toward a future of cleaner air and cleaner water and cheaper energy?” he asked. “Let’s not throw the baby out with the bathwater and not swing too far one way or the other, to where there’s resentment and retribution and payback. I hope we don’t descend to a place where it’s us versus them and into the very bitter kinds of discussions that that can bring.”

Colorado Attorney General Cynthia Coffman is throwing her support behind the U.S. Bureau of Land Management as it defends itself in court against environmentalists opposed to oil and gas development projects. The environmentalists are pursuing a federal lawsuit to halt Bureau of Land Management oil and gas leases in Colorado, Wyoming and Utah. The oil companies plan to drill for oil and use hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, on 379,950 acres of public lands.
