VIDEO: The Left needs a new “Environmental Champion”

At a candidate forum held by Indivisible Colorado over the weekend, Congressman and gubernatorial candidate Jared Polis was asked how he justifies his back and forth on oil and natural gas setbacks over the years.

“People who believe in you as an environmental champion still sometimes get confused on where you are on setbacks and oil & gas,” says the interviewer. Asking Jared to explain his position.

His response is to take credit for championing the cause, while blaming politics for not supporting the 2,500-foot setback that will (probably) be on the November ballot.

Jared already has a history of inconsistencies when it comes to his environmental policies. This video makes it clear that this will continue to be his modus operandi.
