Letters | An uphill oil/gas battle

I wish that I could say that I am both surprised and appalled. But I am neither. The behavior of the COGCC and their attorney (the office of the attorney general) are completely consistent with everything that has transpired since members of the public throughout the state have examined the actions of.

Letters | Push Walmart to improve

For all its trumpeted commitment to social-environmental responsibility, Walmart fails to understand this simple truth: Its workers are part of the environment.

And it should do a lot more if it wants to earn our respect and spending dollars.

Letters | Gun billboard is simple

The fact that Native Americans were well-armed, proud and proficient warriors became the very excuse for the White Government to vilify, demonize and ultimately extirpate them.

Letters | Love Savage

Thank you, thank you, thank you for carrying Dan Savage’s column Savage Love!!!

Thank you also for This Modern World, the only “cartoon” I could ever need.

Letters | Danish and fracking

The COGCC and their ally Gov. Hickenlooper want to put the fracking operations ridiculously close to people’s homes and neighborhood. The scientific data is extremely clear that current fracking practices adversely affect the local air and water quality. The impact to home values is also pretty undeniable.

Letters | Marijuana growers should pay more for electricity

These high-use customers drive the need for increased supply, which all customers have to pay for. A gas electric plant costs in the neighborhood of $80 million. Should we all have to pay increased rates, or just the customers who use twice the average or more?

Letters | We could stop an ice age

In “Have we accidentally prevented another ice age?” (Danish Plan, March 21), he supports global warming as preferable to another ice age, but, not being a climatologist, he doesn’t understand that they are not alternatives.

Letters | Don't forget the mercury at Xcel's Valmont plant

You guys hardly mentioned mercury. Fly ash doesn’t get all of it, especially when burning dirty coal.
