The Sierra Club, Colorado’s largest grassroots group committed to protecting our air, water, land and people, has voted to endorse Proposition 110. Why are we weighing in on transportation? Well, the cars and trucks we drive (and getting the oil and gas that power them) is the largest source of air pollution in the metro area, and one of the largest sources of greenhouse gas emissions. In order to reduce pollution, we need to switch to cleaner cars and electric vehicles – but we also need better transportation infrastructure that gives us more options in how we travel, and lets us spend less time stuck in traffic. That’s where Proposition 110 comes in.

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.

How far does a national park extend past its boundary line? In the case of the Great Sand Dunes National Park, we’re told the boundary stretches past the gate, over a mountain range, and across a valley on the other side. That’s according to anti-fossil fuel activists working to stop oil and natural gas leasing east of the park and on the other side of the mountains on lands managed by the Bureau of Land Management for multiple uses.
