Last week the Independence Institute launched a billboard across the street from the Denver Post building, shaming them for ignoring a major political scandal in Abound Solar’s collapse. In this morning’s paper, a story appears detailing the extensive failure of green energy firms in Colorado. Coincidence?
We can’t be sure one is tied to the other, but one thing is certainly true: the Independence Institute and investigative reporter Todd Shepherd have led the charge to peel back the rhetoric around “green energy” and look at the issue without rose-colored glasses.
Knowing that, it’s rather interesting to us that the Post story completely ignores any mention of Shepherd or the Independence Institute’s work. The slight seems especially intended as the author quotes a DC-based think tank on green energy, rather than calling up the local experts over at i2i.
