Energy AND the Environment

As a thirty year practitioner of environment and energy law, Jim Martin says he’s seen first hand how good Coloradans are at balancing environmental protection and energy development.

“We don’t believe that there’s a conflict between having a clean environment and a good economy- a strong economy, we think you can do both.”

He says that’s why Colorado has been a leader in ensuring responsible energy production that protects air and water quality. Colorado was the first state to create strict rules for air monitoring and baseline water quality testing.

These kinds of protections are being looked at by several states currently experiencing growth in the energy industry as a way to protect the environment and respond to questions raised by voters about oversight of a fast moving industry.
