If we elect U.S. Rep. Jared Polis as our next governor, he will save the unicorn from extinction, pass health care to ensure no one ever dies, and cut our energy bills by taking away our heat and power.

At least that’s how we figure the latter plan will work.

That bold promise by Polis is to completely eliminate the fossil fuels that power our part of the planet 100 percent with renewable energy in only 23 years.

In keeping with his campaign spirit to promise things that won’t happen, we made up the stuff about unicorns and never dying. We figure all have an equal chance of actually happening.

It’s a ridiculous promise, and Polis knows this, writes Vincent Carroll at the Denver Post.
