Steve, I pretty much agree with all of your sentiments. Coal plants these days are remarkably clean and far less expensive than natural gas.

Not meaning to stir a debate, but aren't we already burning clean coal? Nearly 100% of homes in Colorado are fueled by natural gas, and Xcels plan to switch may cause gas prices to jump higher, driving away businesses and potential employers. Coal is efficient, clean energy, with established suppliers and, as evidenced above, supply lines.
Frankly, I'd rather see a nuclear power plant in downtown Denver than a natural gas power plant anywhere in Colorado.

Great set of 'photos Kevin. I noticed that Colorado had escaped much snowfall prior to Christmas. It seems like Northern Europe and the East Coast of the United States got your share.
