While we agree with Cory Gardner in recommending a cautious policy when dealing with Russia, we believe the Senator is using the current distrust between Russia and the US as cover to advance his real overriding agenda, promoting the fracked gas industry. After all, according to Ballotpedia.com, since 2009 Sen. Gardner has received at least $750K from the oil and gas industry in direct campaign contributions alone. As such, Gardner’s industry-serving “solutions" demand a more critical look.

A recent Colorado Politics article told of Denver Mayor Michael Hancock’s climate action plan. The mayor reported, as part of his State of the City address, that his plan would move Colorado’s largest city to 100 percent renewable electricity by 2030. Now, I should admit right up front that I’m fairly committed to combatting climate change. I am a senior research fellow at a couple of DC-based environmental policy/national security policy think tanks and have been looking at climate change for many years.
