Mapping the Political Landscape of Hydraulic Fracturing in Colorado

by Tanya Heikkila and Chris Weible, School of Public Affairs, University of Colorado Denver

Abstract: What is the landscape of hydraulic fracturing politics in Colorado?  How does Colorado politics on this issue compare to other states?  To what extent do people view recent regulations as solving problems in Colorado? This presentation explores these questions using recent data collected in Colorado, Texas, and New York.  The findings and conclusions emphasize areas of agreement and disagreement with strategies for moving forward.

Bios: Tanya Heikkila and Chris Weible are associate professors at the School of Public Affairs at the University of Colorado Denver.  They specialize in understanding environmental conflicts and cooperation.
