What do you think about the ski industry's plans for cloud seeding? Wait for impact studies. How many times have drugs been released before all the potential consequences were settled?
Do you foresee long-term consequences? Climate change? Chemical pollution? Alterations in vegetation?
How would you manipulate weather if you could? I'd like more gentle, warm rains instead of long periods of drought and then massive snow.
Is the state economy dependent on the ski industry? The ski industry would like us to believe that, but I'm skeptical. I'm a citizen of Colorado, not Vail or Aspen.

Should cloud seeding proceed prior to impact studies? No. Anything outside the natural process could be disruptive in the long run.
How would you manipulate weather if you could? I'd help dry things out in Seattle. Make less cold and rain and a little more sunshine.
Does our economy depend on the ski industry? It's an important part. It attracts people from all over the world.
What Winter Olympics event most piques your interest? Every single one of them, but figure skating most of all. It's an art form.
Is the ski industry's plan for cloud seeding advisable? It's irresponsible to manipulate nature to fit man's needs. Who knows how it would affect surrounding weather systems and water levels?
If you had power to manipulate weather, what would you do? Create beautiful sunsets and make more rainbows.
Is Colorado's economy dependent on the ski industry? Ski areas bring tourists in the winter not only to the Western Slope, but to Colorado Springs and Denver, too.
What Winter Olympic events excite you most? Ski jumping, figure skating and speed skating, because of Apolo Ohno. I like following how Colorado Springs participants fare.
