Do you support Boulder’s drive to municipalize its electric utility? If so, what are the limits on taxpayer dollars and time you are prepared to spend to achieve that goal and, if not, how do you propose to achieve Boulder’s renewable energy goals?

We are talking about the lesser of two evils here with coal and natural gas. Coal drives massive carbon dioxide emissions while natural gas drives methane emissions. Public preference is driven by extraction, and currently fracking is the model for natural gas. I do not support fracking as it is unregulated and environmentally damaging. We will need a mix of fossil fuels to bridge the gap until renewable energy and storage solutions fully mature.
