Ted Zukoski, Attorney, Earthjustice: “Gov. Hickenlooper has committed the state to achieving the Paris agreement’s greenhouse gas reduction goals and to being a leader in reducing methane pollution from the oil and gas industry. Subsidizing a coal mine at the expense of Colorado taxpayers in order to benefit the single largest industrial methane polluter in the state undermines both of those commitments.”
