WELCOME TO PSR COLORADO

PSR Colorado activists will keep fighting the good fight in court and in the public eye to stop the Greenway project from exposing more people to Rocky Flats contamination. Read more here!
""The entire refuge and beyond has been dusted, finely dusted with very small particles and very, very small volumes over four decades of production out there," said former CU Boulder Profesor Harvey Nichols."
..."In May, along with Nichols, Physicians for Social Responsibility and the Environmental Information Network filed an injunction to stop the City of Boulder from spending tax dollars on the Rocky Mountain Greenway Trail intended to connect the refuge to other nearby trails.
"Several of us live in superior and in Boulder and we’re concerned about what’s going on here," said Sasha Stiles."

September 3 Joint Webinar Recording

Health Impacts of Natural Gas in the Home: 

Children and Health Equity

Click here to watch the webinar

Our first Healthy Electric Homes webinar, "Health Impacts of Natural Gas in the Home: Focus on Children and Health Equity"  was held on September 3.

Burning gas in homes releases carbon monoxide, nitrogen dioxide, and small particulate matter. This increases the risks for asthma, heart attacks, strokes, emergency room visits, carbon monoxide poisoning, and deaths.

Studies show that those who suffer the most from indoor air pollution are those in low-income communities. Children are also among the most vulnerable groups.  Learn what you can do as a health professional to best advise your patients, and as an activist to change policy!

Our presenters were Yadira Caraveo, MD, pediatrician and Colorado State Representative; Cory Carroll, MD, family practice physician; and Jessica Miller, MD, general pediatrician.

Colorado Parents & Experts Speak Out

Oil and Gas Methane Pollution Harms our Health & Climate

Click here to watch the webinar

PSR Colorado co-hosted a webinar on September 9 to present information about the health harms associated with methane pollution and what you can do to help protect the air our kids breathe.

Methane is a potent greenhouse gas responsible for 25 percent of the climate change we're already experiencing in Colorado. Wherever oil and gas is being extracted, compressed, or processed, you can find methane and harmful air pollutants such as benzene, which can cause cancer and contribute to ozone pollution or smog.

We ask you to raise your voice to tell Colorado's public officials to strengthen methane and toxic air pollution rules to protect our communities.

Colorados regulators will be making critical decisions about methane emissions from oil and gas operations in our state. This is our chance to have stronger protections put in place. State officials will be hearing from the oil and gas industry, so they must hear from us as well.
