      Hi Ed – I was delighted to see you pick up the Coloradoan story “New tech classes train students for clean energy jobs”. You can’t imagine the creativity and collaboration happening in Fort Collins: UniverCity Connections; Sustainable Living Fair/Association; New Belgium Brewing; the Engines & Energy Lab at CSU under the direction of Bryan Willson (http://www.economist.com/science/tq/displaystory.cfm?story_id=11999189 ); Green Energy Conference; RMI2; the new wind farms (a large percentage of our municipally-owned/operated electricity is wind-powered – our utility bills are incredibly low) and, so much more for such a small city. It’s mind-boggling. It’s nice to see Fort Collins make your radar screen. Keep the faith, /cb
