Colorado Sen. Mark Udall was elected as an environmentalist Congressman from Boulder in 1998. When told his race for Senator was close in 2008, he caved to big oil:
Denver Post, 8/14/08
"Udall calling for more domestic drilling and reversing his long-standing opposition to drilling off America's shores."
He must have made enough "friends" who showed him a good enough time that although he's safely a Senator until 2014, he's sold out completely:
Denver Post, 10/31/09
"Udall widens push for nuclear plants"Grist, 11/12/09
"They [14 Democratic Senators including Udall] call for the free allocation of pollution permits to electric utilities to be distributed 'fully based on emissions'"Glenwood Springs Post Independent 8/11/11
"Udall calls fracking ‘safe technology'"
The world's foremost energy expert, Colorado's own Amory Lovins, founder of Rocky Mountain Institute, says all 4 are inferior to renewables.
Udall was born on 3rd base to a prominent political family that made their reputation as environmentalists. Why is he hitting a home run for oil, coal gas and nukes??
Mark Udall is also profoundly dishonest. Read in my "Tale of 4 Udalls" how he repeatedly lies about a project I've worked 20 years on, which both his own brothers have endorsed!
Remember who Mark Udall really is when he runs for re-election in 2014. He suckered me for my vote in 1998. Never again.
