Fossil fuel ignorance is bliss in the Aspen bubble

June 24, 2019

I wish I still lived in the Aspen bubble. Alas, however, the need to be closer to advanced health care necessitated a move to Denver. Those living in the bubble, though, have clearly not gotten...


Brains over brawn

June 24, 2019

Act now, help the powerless

June 23, 2019

The jig’s up for climate deniers

June 23, 2019

I’m your man for president

June 20, 2019

More skepticism needed over climate change

June 20, 2019

I turn on the TV and hear it’s 65 degrees downtown and 71 degrees at the airport. The two weather apps on my smartphone say 64 and 67 degrees. Climate scientists tell us that the...


Evidence shows Earth is melting

June 20, 2019

I have to agree with Fred Malo’s letter regarding climate change (“Memo to Aspen Times columnist: Global warming applies to entire earth,” June 18, aspentimes.com); Glenn Beaton must have his head buried in the sand!...


Fossil energy industry in decline

June 19, 2019

This is a quick response to Chad Klinger’s post on my letter to the editor regarding Mr. Beaton’s column (“Aspen columnist might be divisive, but misses the mark,” June 17, aspentimes.com). I need to respond...


Hot over Beaton column

June 18, 2019

Glenn Beaton agrees that global warming is happening, that it’s likely partly due to human activity and that we should take it seriously (“Aspen’s warnin’ warminites are chillin’,” commentary, June 16, The Aspen Times). He...

They’ll be wearing brown shirts next

June 17, 2019

The “deep state” federal government should repaint Air Force 1 and 2 in Stuka dive bomber dark green for the next two years. Miles Knudson Aspen Village




Please keep us in the Knous

June 14, 2019

Normally I applaud your paper’s coverage of our local athletes’ accomplishments, but I have noticed one glaring omission. What about Jim Knous? Jim is playing on the PGA tour, competing against the likes of Tiger...


The difference between winners and losers

June 14, 2019

I count myself among the hundreds of thousands, or perhaps millions, of breadwinners, including my father and his many D-Day Veterans, who spent two to three hours commuting to Manhattan five days a week, so...


Aspen blinded by its excesses

June 14, 2019

Just be cause you can, does not mean you should! It is insane that local officials in Pitkin County and Aspen allow homes to be built the size they are. Most are not even primary...
