Congresswoman challenges environmentally-friendly cities to end fossil fuel use and see how long they get along

U.S. Rep. Harriet Hageman told the 250 attendees at Wyoming Mining Association’s annual convention in Cody, Wyoming, on Friday, that the city of Boulder, Colorado, should step up as a pilot project among urban cities in the U.S. to see how it gets along without fossil fuels. "We’re living in a la-la land. We’re with unicorns and fairy dust. That doesn’t make sense,” Hageman said.


Wyoming Congresswoman Harriet Hageman apparently isn’t afraid to challenge environmentalists and green energy supporters as witnessed by her latest “put your money where your mouth is” reply.

In recent comments during the Wyoming Mining Association’s annual convention in Cody, Rep. Hageman said if the liberals of the country want to eliminate fossil fuels, then lead by example.

She offered a solution for Boulder, Colorado, a city known for its liberal stances on environmental issues. The Republican congresswoman said Boulder could be a test city by stopping all use of fossil fuels and see how well that works in the city she says is living in “la la land.”

“I absolutely refuse to buy into the idea of global warming and climate change,” Hageman said, reported the Cowboy State Daily.
