State geologist Vince Matthews said the ravenous appetite China and India are showing for energy and minerals will directly affect Colorado.

“China is growing at a much faster rate than the United States,” said Matthews, who is the Colorado Geologic Survey director. “In 2005, they built 70,000 new supermarkets, and in 2006 they became the number three car manufacturer in the world.”
