On November 27 Colorado Springs City Council is scheduled to give the oil and gas industry permission to poison our water and air.

I’m concerned, however, because council is being pressured by special interests to approve inadequate regulation.

The drilling industry has infiltrated the state body that’s supposed to regulate it. It has coached state and local officials in drafting…

With the recent Presidential elections I’m thinking a lot about the power of choice, our actions and consequences of those actions. As parents we are the ones able to vote in government elections, but how do our kids get a vote or have a say?
