Fossil Fuel Reporting Collaboration

  • We conclude the Rocky Mountain Community Radio collaboration on fossil fuel transitions with the 19th story in the series. It’s hard to imagine a carbon neutral world without considering airplanes. Aviation contributes about 2.5 percent of annual CO2 emissions worldwide. As KOTO’s Matt Hoisch explains, airports are starting to find ways to bring down that number.

  • County Clerks from Delta, Montrose, and Ouray Counties are participating in a panel discussion tomorrow hosted by the nonpartisan League of Women Voters of the Uncompaghre Valley. They’ll discuss this year’s elections, including changes to precincts, election security, and how vote tabulation works. Carol Howe, VP of the local League, talks to Gavin Dahl about why they're convening this panel. Plus, the northern skies of the Navajo Nation are clearer after the closure of the coal-powered Navajo Generating Station. But the region also lost jobs and tax revenue. For Rocky Mountain Community Radio’s series on fossil fuel transitions, KZMU’s Justin Higginbottom reports on the legacy of Navajo Nation coal power and what comes next, a proposed hydropower plant. *Correction: Gavin mistakenly said Ouray County Clerk Michelle Nauer is a Democrat. She is unaffiliated.*

  • Law enforcement has made an arrest of a man in Idaho connected with the double murder in Paonia from two weeks ago. Plus, Kate Redmond reports Colorado’s wolf reintroduction got a surprise assist from a family of wolves who wandered over state lines from Wyoming, giving Parks and Wildlife officers an opportunity to collar them and study their movements. Then, for Rocky Mountain Community Radio’s journalism collaboration, KGNU’s Hannah Leigh Myers reports 169 low-income essential workers in Colorado are using eBikes paid for by the state. The Can Do Colorado eBike pilot program appears to be a hit with participants and a positive step in the transition away from fossil fuels.

  • Delta County might be adding to its fleet of vehicles by buying a semi-truck to haul dumpsters. Kate Redmond reports from the County Commissioner meeting. Plus, most Crested Butte residents want to fight climate change. But some people weren’t happy with the purchase of a new electric vehicle by local law enforcement. For our Rocky Mountain Community Radio collaboration on fossil fuel transitions, KBUT’s Christopher Biddle reports on what might have caused the backlash.
