Hickenlooper paints himself as an energy policy uniter

DENVER-- Addressing the fifth annual Sustainable Opportunities Summit here yesterday, candidate for governor and Denver Mayor John Hickenlooper noted the political tensions that have risen around the natural gas industry and the environmental community over the past years but said the two sides have more in common than they might think. Making sidelong reference to the back and forth on energy policy between Democratic Gov. Bill Ritter and GOP gubernatorial candidate Scott McInnis, Hickenlooper said that as governor he would bring environmentalists and oil and gas industry representatives together to create consensus.
