22 Wind 4% of U.S. 10% of Colorado $100 B in past decade 20% someday? Vessels Coal Gas INC

23 I ts Time to Get Real About Climate Protection 23 Since 1997 Colorado has installed nearly $4 billion worth of wind turbines and solar panels. These investments in a clean energy economy are a tremendous accomplishment. But you will know we are serious about tackling climate change when we begin focusing on reducing METHANE emissions, not just on carbon dioxide. Randy Udall

24 2012: Hottest Year Ever for Lower 48 Science Magazine recently published a study showing that methane and soot reduction would have the most significant, immediate, and cost effective impact on global warming. Vessels Coal Gas INC 24 GLOBAL WARMING POTENTIAL
