When it comes to energy, Colorado has it all, with an abundance of oil, natural gas and coal, as well as solar and wind power. With all of those options to choose from, the Rocky Mountain state has seen its share of both controversy and compromise, and may offer a lesson for other states responding to new energy and climate challenges. On this episode of Columbia Energy Exchange, host Bill Loveless talks with Bill Ritter, a former Democratic governor of Colorado, about his new book: “Powering Forward: What Everyone Should Know About America’s Energy Revolution.” Governor Ritter joined the podcast from the Center for the New Energy Economy at Colorado State University, which he launched in 2011. This interview was originally recorded on May 20, 2016.
