Abstract

The 2005 State of the Rockies Report Card continues the Rockies Project tradition of identifying, assessing, and communicating key issues and problems in this unique region of spectacular natural beauty and cultural wealth, abundant resources and fragile environment. The Report Card includes thoughtful and often provocative analysis and discussion of some key issues that confront the Rockies: energy, the condition of the national parks, urban sprawl, toxic waste, creative occupations, and civic engagement. Edited by Walter E. Hecox (CC professor of economics), F. Patrick Holmes III (CC class of 2003), Bryan Hurlbutt (CC class of 2004).
