comments on the OIL AND GAS GHG ROADMAP STAKEHOLDER MEETING, 11/5/20

I observed this zoom meeting, which was conducted by the AQCC staffers Stephanie Rucker and Robyn Wille. While somewhat short (about 60 minutes), it did allow for Micah Parker of 350 Colorado, and Jeremy Nichols of Wildearth Guardians to ask their questions in person, and get a response. There were some 93 attendees also attending, either dialed in or attending via Zoom; though only the AQCC staff video showed, or questioners who spoke.

Basically the AQCC was strongly confronted about how in the world can they expect a roadmap to reducing GHG emissions also include increased O&G production? In particular, will the AQCC deal with the fact that a significant part of the O&G produced is being exported out of state? Of course, the polite dialogue from the AQCC staff that followed equivocated and beat around the bush about it, and defended their actions by kicking the can down the road, saying this is an ongoing process.

The AQCC staff then answered a long series of questions that other attendees had submitted, that more or less repeated the above behavior.

The meeting was recorded; if I learn of the link, I will post it here.
