A recent Bloomberg article revealed an interesting fact about some of the fractivists in Colorado trying to push a so-called local control measure that would stunt the growth of any business in Colorado localities – either they don’t understand what they’re pushing or are willfully misleading Coloradans.
“I’m not anti-fracking, I’m pro-health,” said Kelly Giddens, a Fort Collins resident and a proponent of a local-control measure. “We aren’t telling the communities they have to regulate oil and gas more than the state does,” she added. “It’s strictly about giving them the constitutional protections, as a community, to be able to regulate oil and gas as they see fit.”
Not anti-fracking? As you know, Local Control Colorado tried the same thing a few weeks back, and got busted by Michael Sandoval at Complete Colorado, who published a recording of another Local Control Colorado activist coordinating with national “ban fracking” groups and confirming that the statewide “local control” measure is absolutely about banning fracking:
“Those of us who are working to ban fracking will be excited to hear that under the name of Local Control Colorado, a coalition of grassroots groups has moved forward to create a statewide ballot measure.”
So guys, which is it? Are you trying to ban fracking statewide or are your activists lying to the media? Just asking.
Love the solutions, more invasive governance regulation, and more governance debt to subsidies for failed energy sources like wind and solar.. Great Plan! And what a future for our children! They will be bankrupt, freezing and foraging the land for food while there is billions of dollars worth of energy under their feet.
