There’s nothing to fear from the EV transition, and we all have a lot to gain from cleaner, healthier air and freedom from gas prices.
The “emissions intensity” rule requires companies closely monitor methane releases and limits allowed pollution based on how much oil and gas they produce
The question is whether the 9-county nonattainment area will one day meet EPA air quality thresholds, as Atlanta did this year, or become a perennial offender like Sheboygan, Wisconsin
Dealers must add clean electric medium and heavy trucks for ‘27 model year, and switch to low-NOx scores in fossil fuel engines

The demise of the oil and gas industry in Colorado — predicted after the passage of legislation and regulations focused on protecting public health, safety and the environment — does not appear to be imminent.
