Thomas Linzey of the Community Environmental Legal Defense Fund joined us live for a call-in show on community rights approach to regulating and banning fracking and other industrial activities in communities. Linzey wrote a scathing commentary in the Colorado Statesman criticizing the deal brokered by Governor John Hickenlooper and Congressman Jared Polis on oil and gas ballot initiatives.
