Well, it’s Friday and so I’m guessing you may well be expecting a column on Judge Kavanaugh. And I think there are very important things to be said about this important nomination. But I’m not going to be the one to say them (Ed: yay!). Instead, I’m giving you a break from that Washington nightmare and instead I want to talk about an entirely different problem – radiation standards at the EPA, teachers, and the Nobel Prize in Physics. See how it all comes together? Not so much? (Ed: nope)

Three years ago, a small group of local governments forged a coalition to push for stronger climate protection policies in Colorado. That coalition, Colorado Communities for Climate Action, is now 20 communities strong. Our member jurisdictions span the Western Slope and the Front Range, municipalities and counties, resort towns and suburbs. They share a commitment to reducing carbon pollution, protecting Colorado from the growing impacts of climate change, and ensuring that our economy can remain competitive and sustainable in the years to come.

As soon as next week, the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA) and Department of Transportation (DOT) will begin a process, which over the coming months, could dramatically scale back vehicle fuel economy standards. These proposed changes to EPA's 2016 GHG emissions, followed by a “Notice of Proposed Rulemaking” to the Corporate Average Fuel Economy (CAFE) standards at DOT for model years 2022-2025, would hamper growth by automotive and parts makers, cost consumers and small businesses money at the pump and put more emissions in our air.
