Support the independent voice of Denver and help keep the future of Westword free.

Our post yesterday about the one-hundred dirtiest power plants as enumerated in an Environment Colorado report raised concerns about uncaptured carbon being spewed by giant energy-generating facilities. But not every reader was alarmed. For instance, this commenter sees claims of danger as sheer propaganda.

Move on. No one needs to give a fig about carbon footprints. We need CO2. Hurricane Sandy was a conflux of 3 simultaneous events. Very rare. We have nearly the lowest hurricane season ever. This is all BS, funded by G.Soros and his ilk who only want bigger government, higher utility bills, more control. Margaret McCall = another whiny liar, joins the ranks of Lois Lerner, Holly Paz, etc. More posts like these and I will definitely cancel my "Like" of Denver Westword.

Keep Westword Free... Since we started Westword, it has been defined as the free, independent voice of Denver, and we would like to keep it that way. Offering our readers free access to incisive coverage of local news, food and culture. Producing stories on everything from political scandals to the hottest new bands, with gutsy reporting, stylish writing, and staffers who've won everything from the Society of Professional Journalists' Sigma Delta Chi feature-writing award to the Casey Medal for Meritorious Journalism. But with local journalism's existence under siege and advertising revenue setbacks having a larger impact, it is important now more than ever for us to rally support behind funding our local journalism. You can help by participating in our "I Support" membership program, allowing us to keep covering Denver with no paywalls.
