Mountain Edition - August 13th, 2015

Aug 13, 2015

  Good afternoon, it’s Mountain Edition. I’m Elise Thatcher.

And, I’m Marci Krivonen. Governor Hickenlooper visits Aspen and talks about climate change.

A man arrested for stealing pot from an Aspen dispensary gets transferred to a local jail.

General Wesley Clark was in Aspen for AREDay. He discussed renewable energy, national security and climate change.

A new Colorado law around DUIs might make life a little safer in the Roaring Fork Valley.

The orange plume that swept through the Animas River near Durango was due to mining pollution. Could the same disaster happen here?

We profile the Pacific Mambo Orchestra, that’s visiting Aspen this week.

Finally, we tour an efficient new building in Basalt. RMI’s Innovation is more than halfway complete.
