Letter: Not rocket science

Not rocket science

Aspen can’t seem to get its climate-change position right. The “micro hydro” project on Castle Creek should never be abandoned to Koch and “fossil fuels.” The 51 percent vote against it was engineered by Koch, SOB (stupid, old billionaire.) But, he’s selling his $87 million “spread” on Castle Creek.

Why? I suspect because oil prices have dropped so much that he is hurting. No tears here.

If I were on the Aspen City Council, I would either reinstate the FERC permit, or lend money to owners to reduce their carbon footprint and they will repay with gas and electric savings.

Not rocket science, just good business.
