In a cogent, persuasive and biting article at Forbes magazine, Marlo Lewis shows that Republican establishment Romney and his Republican establishment friends and advisors want to blur [further, if that's possible] any distinction between Democrats and Republicans. This will resolve, once and for all, any doubts that the parties are two wings of the same bird of prey. The issue [...]

After months of frustration with the Denver Post refusing to cover the explosive Abound Solar debacle, last week we put up these billboards around the Denver Post:
Yesterday the Denver Post’s front page, top-of-the-fold story was on the failures of the new energy industry, writing, “The Weld County district attorney’s office is investigating the failure of [...]

Why is this Billboard now across the street from the Denver Post building?
I don’t want anyone to get the wrong idea, so let me explain. I really miss the days of Denver being a two newspaper town. The Denver Post and the Rocky Mountain News for a century had a competition which gave Coloradans superior [...]

Last week our Energy Policy Center put on the third in a series of women-only energy debates. This one focused on vehicle regulations (like CAFE standards) and was titled, “Minivans vs. Smart Cars.” As always, it was a great output of high powered intellectual forces, with both sides making excellent points and engaging in an [...]

LADIES! Please join us tomorrow, Wednesday the 10th, for our 3rd women’s energy debate!
TOPIC: Smart Cars vs. Minivans
Ladies debate CAFE standards, smart cars, hybrids and government subsidies. Are higher CAFE standards good for families? Are kids safe in a smart car? Can these products thrive in a free market.

It’s Monday. Booooooo. No one likes Mondays. But allow me to help you cope with today.
If you happen to be male and reading this, then I’m certain you did not attend our women-only renewable energy debate we had this past Wednesday. I snuck in to watch for a few minutes here and there and let [...]

I want to give a big thanks to Amy Oliver Cooke for guest hosting my show while I was away. In the first episode, she sat down with former petroleum engineer Donovan Schafer to discuss fracking. Should we fear it like everyone seems to be telling us?
In the second segment, Krista Kafer joins Amy to [...]

My latest for Who Said You Said: “When everyone says you’re drunk, you’d better sit down.” When both The Wall Street Journal and NPR have questions about a policy, it’s time to rethink it. The Renewable Fuel Standard’s ethanol mandate requires an increasing amount of ethanol be blended in gasoline every year. Last year, more than a third of America’s corn [...]keep looking »
