Gas of a time
In the past two days I am favorable toward two petroleum industry-related articles, “It’s Time to Drill” (Jeremy Madden, Aspen Daily News, June 12) and “Energy Boosters: Rules Could Doom Industry” (David Frey, Aspen Daily News, June 11).
I spent the whole day at the June 10 Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (COGCC), hearing about the new prospective drafted regulations affecting the petroleum industry in Colorado.
There were more than 2,000 attendees, and I heard their voices through the many who testified. It felt great to be with so many American oil industry champions.
Of course, I testified and handed in my speech about “Petroleum Ecological Economics: Operational Freedom Needed.”
The COGCC hearing in Grand Junction was one of the best long days I have enjoyed in a long time. You ain’t seen nothing yet.
