Each year, the Colorado Petroleum Council hosts an annual luncheon and dialogue on the state of the energy industry in Colorado and the Mountain West. Especially during this time of increasingly heated political debate, we find it critically important to come together at today's gathering and discuss a wide range of issues, from public policy outcomes to environmental achievements to the broader state of Colorado’s present and future energy industry.

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.

Coloradans, by virtue of our surrounding beauty, are environmentalists. We respect the land, our water, and our air while we enjoy our earth’s resources. For those of us for whom the land and its vast resources are our livelihood, we are encouraged to see the momentous strides to bolster American security, economic growth and environmental sustainability. We celebrate them this Earth Day and National Environmental Education Week. Our land in Colorado provides for our families and communities, and industries, such as natural gas and oil as well as agriculture, are vital to fulfilling modern expectations for life, health and prosperity.
