Two quick fixes

Dear Editor:

Two clarifications regarding Roger Marolt’s letter about Environment Foundation funding to protect the Roan Plateau (Jan. 19). First, the foundation doesn’t represent Aspen Skiing Co. It’s an independent nonprofit. Second, the foundation isn’t opposed to gas drilling. Natural gas is clean, versatile and low in carbon. We need it. But it seems imprudent to drill every square inch of western Colorado. Some places should be sacred. In any case, we’ll need the Roan to support our hiking, fishing and hunting economy once the gas boom has come and gone.
