Timeline Photos Yesterday, I was in Somerset visiting the Elk Creek Mine methane-capture project, which creates enough energy to fuel Aspen Skiing Company's four ski areas, 13 restaurants and three hotels, while reducing carbon emissions from the mine by an estimated 96,000 tons of carbon dioxide a year.
The Elk Creek Mine methane-capture project is a great example of how Colorado businesses came together to create jobs and turn coal bed methane — which is normally seen as a waste product — into an innovative and cost-effective source of electricity. This is just another way Colorado is showing the nation ways to think outside the box about how we power our nation. I look forward to continuing to work in Washington to encourage these groundbreaking and job-creating energy partnerships as part of an innovations-focused, 21st century energy strategy.

We recently signed a Climate Declaration with 33 other companies including Nike, eBay and Clif Bar, asking the U.S. Government to implement a national strategy to combat climate change.
