Stand up to Dirty Energy in Colorado.

It is time to stand up against companies that are trying to destroy our natural resources and refuse to prioritize our health and safety. Your participation this week is crucial in the fight against dirty energy in Colorado.

Here is how ...

FIGHT AGAINST COAL

The Trump administration is pushing to expand coal extraction into Colorado’s untouched forests. Our state of Colorado has some of the most incredible untouched forests in the nation including the West Elk Wilderness Area. It’s home to glistening Aspen trees, crystal clear streams, and a variety of wildlife including thousands of elk, deer, black bear, and lynx.

President Trump’s Interior Department and Forest Service are now preparing to let Arch Coal -- the second largest coal producer in the U.S. -- devastate these lands. The Forest Service has opened the Arch Coal proposal to public comment through July 24th.

Submit your comments:  Now is your chance to tell the Trump administration not to rip apart our untouched forests for a few more years of coal extraction.

STAND WITH THE YOUTHS AGAINST THE COLORADO OIL AND GAS COMMISSION

Even after the Colorado Court of Appeals ruled the health and safety of Coloradans must be prioritized when it comes to fracking, the COGCC is proceeding with business as usual by allowing this reckless industry to harm the health and well-being of Coloradans. They are appealing the decision, despite the extreme hazards that fracking presents, including two deadly oil & gas explosions just a few months ago.

We cannot let the COGCC get away with ignoring impacts to our health, safety and well-being! 

At their next public hearing (THIS COMING MONDAY), we need to demand that the COGCC:

1.      STOP THE APPEAL in the Martinez decision
2.     RESCIND ALL NEW PERMITS issued following the Martinez decision
3.     STOP ISSUING ILLEGAL PERMITS that ignore the law

WHEN: Monday, July 24th at 8:30 a.m. (Arrive on time to pack the room before the meeting starts)

WHERE: The Chancery Building 1120 Lincoln Street, Suite 801 in Denver

Here's what's needed:
