Colorado wants to ban oil and gas drilling? Wyoming says the drillers are welcome

A coalition of anti-fossil fuels groups are gathering signatures in Colorado in an effort to ban oil and gas drilling in that state by 2030.


A move by environmentalists in Colorado to eliminate all new permitting of oil and gas drilling in the state by 2030 is not only being called “ignorant” but welcomed by residents and legislators in Wyoming.

“It sends a message to the oil and gas companies that here in Wyoming, we’re open for business,” said State Rep. Cyrus Western in response to the petition drive by the coalition Healthy & Safe Colorado reported Cowboy State Daily.
