Remember those so-called "Hamilton Electors?" Of course you do. They were four of the nine Colorado Democratic electors who joined a national movement to try to thwart Donald Trump's election through the Electoral College process. The plan was to get enough electors nationwide to band together and vote for an alternate candidate, keeping Trump from the White House.

Colorado’s clean energy economy has seen remarkable growth over the past twelve years, and I’ve had a front row seat. As policy director on Ken Salazar’s 2004 Senate campaign, his state issues counsel from 2005 through 2007, and as the executive director of the Colorado Energy Research Collaboratory from 2007 to 2016, I’ve seen these changes firsthand: renewable energy technologies have become mainstream, successfully competing head-to-head with coal and natural gas for new electric power generation in Colorado and around the world; Coloradans have led the world in establishing regulatory systems to make natural gas a cleaner source of energy, and we’ve made huge strides in technologies to produce fuels and chemicals from plants and algae.
