Those who are restless in their old homes, and seek to better their condition, will find greater advantages in Colorado than anywhere else in the west….The climate possesses peculiar charms for those in failing health, and invalids can find here a sure panacea for nearly every human ill. The poor should come to Colorado, because here they can by industry and frugality better their condition. The rich should come here, because they can more advantageously invest their means than in any other new region. The young should come here to get an early start on the road to wealth, and the old should come to get a new lease on life, and to enjoy their declining years in a country unequaled for its natural beauty and loveliness. In short, it is the Mecca for all classes and conditions, and we thoughtfully recommend it to the thoughtful examination of the public.

—Territorial government pamphlet. 1872

"You can drink it. We did drink it, around the table, almost ritual-like…"

Colorado Governor John Hickenlooper at a Senate hearing on natural gas, saying he once drank fracking fluid with Halliburton representatives.

Hickenlooper says the liquid he sipped was made entirely of “food additives,” but fracking fluids can contain chemicals ranging from lead to formaldehyde

(via officialssay)

think how quickly our problems would be solved if more officials drank fracking fluid

Mount Evans is absolutely gorgeous, and I saw a lot of adorable baby goats when I did this drive. It was incredibly worth it.
