Independent’s Williams appears tonight on PBS’s ‘Colorado State of Mind’

Colorado Independent reporter David O. Williams, who covers energy and environmental issues on the state’s Western Slope, appears tonight at 7:30 on the Rocky Mountain PBS (KRMA Channel 6) show “Colorado State of Mind.” The topic is “The Future of Oil and Gas in Colorado.”

In his second appearance on the show hosted by veteran Colorado broadcast journalist Cynthia Hessin, Williams is joined by panelists David Neslin, executive director of the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission; Jim Spehar, former Grand Junction mayor and current columnist for the Grand Junction Free Press and High Country News; and Michael Brown, former FEMA director and current KOA-AM (Denver) radio host.

Taped Thursday afternoon, topics of discussion range from the impacts of the state’s one-year-old oil-and-gas drilling regulations – including the political impacts- to the ongoing cleanup in the Gulf of Mexico in the wake of the Deepwater Horizon oil spill.

Brown made headlines Monday when he accused President Barrack Obama of playing politics with the spill by responding slowly in order to turn public opinion against offshore drilling.
