A group of Colorado businesses have opened themselves up to scrutiny by writing an open letter to Governor Hickenlooper, supporting the Environmental Protection Agency’s Clean Power Rule. The rule will force power plants to reduce carbon emissions, significantly within the next 15 years, a costly move that could shut some plants down. New Belgium Brewing is one of the signatories on the letter. The brewing company lost significant business in Craig and other western slope communities when it was discovered they were supporters of the WildEarth Guardians, an environmental group trying to shut down the ColoWyo Coal Mine. Most of the other hundreds of supposed WildEarth supporters have asked the group to exclude them in future promotions or supporter lists. The letter urges the governor to lean toward policies that would promote renewable energy and shut down fossil fuel development. You can view the entire letter, and the list of its signatories, below.
