The Salt Lake City Tribune isn't the most conservative paper in the west, or even Utah for that matter. And they're not above borrowing a a bit from the Green With Envy tour sponsored in part by Trout Unlimited. But we have to give them a lot of credit for their editorial position on the Green River that states:
The prudent thing is to call a halt to further development of its waters and leave them for the wildlife and humans who already depend upon them.
In other words, no pipeline to the front range and no diversions to cool a nuclear plant.
