We are in the midst of an energy crisis and we are going to spend valuable resources creating these materials, trucking them out there, and installing them. For what? Colorado is so beautiful why add some man made drapes only to take them down shortly after.
This is a waste.
It is, supposedly, all out of his own pocket. But, what most people don't consider is the countless hours that have been put in, over the years, drawing up the paper work, drafting environmental impact plans, the phone calls, the luncheons, the meetings...etc..etc..I would LOVE to see the total on that. I bet it is STAGGERING.
Wouldn't that money have been better spent protecting a river, locking up another fine chunk of land to protect from ourselves or reversing damage that has already been done.
That would just make WAY TOO MUCH sense...
