To quote Vice President Joe Biden: “This is a big fucking deal!”
Tod and I will be heading over to the Front Range to participate in the Public Comment Session on Wednesday. We won’t be able to stay for all three days of hearings so the live webcast will be helpful, though it will compete with the Olympics. The timing is great because I’m battling my second upper respiratory infection this year. A friend has had strep twice. I won’t be at a loss for words. We only get 3 minutes to talk, so between us we get six minutes. If there is anything you’d like us to be sure and say, please do let me know via email: email@example.com
We will be happy to share comments from the community. We’re still working on our comments and will no doubt be doing so right up till the day of. My comments focus on the air quality in Silt. I have a feeling things are going to get real busy between now and then and I wanted to be sure and post these important links and info. Be sure to watch this post for updates and/or additional info between now and Wednesday.

As reported in The Daily Sentinel on 2/14/14, Noble and Anadarko said the new rule “represents a center-ground, appropriate approach for the state:”
“It’s right for the state of Colorado, it’s right for the health of our communities and it’s right for our business,” said Curtis Rueter, liquid and compressed natural gas development manager for Noble Energy, in a news conference.
Robin Olsen, a spokeswoman for Anadarko Petroleum, called the proposed rules “really in the best interest of all Coloradans as well as oil and gas companies here in Colorado,” and said they are model rules that would provide accountability.
Noble, Anadarko and Encana worked with the Environmental Defense Fund and the state in drawing up a proposal announced by Gov. John Hickenlooper in November.
