Colorado Parents & Experts Speak Out:
Oil and Gas Methane Pollution Harms our Health
Join advocates and experts on Wednesday, Sept 9, at 6:30 p.m. MT for a virtual webinar to learn more about the health harms of methane pollution and what you can do to help protect the air our kids breathe.
Methane is a potent greenhouse responsible for 25 percent of the climate change we’re already experiencing in Colorado. Wherever oil and gas is being drilled, compressed, or processed, you can find methane and harmful air pollutants such as benzene that can cause cancer and contribute to ozone pollution or smog.
Now we need you to raise your voice to tell Colorado’s leaders and agencies to strengthen methane and toxic air pollution rules to protect our communities. There will be two important public hearings coming up in September and we will share information on how to give comments.
Two important public hearings are coming up in September with Colorado regulators. They will be making critical decisions about methane and the oil and gas operations in our state. This is our chance to have stronger protections put in place. They will be hearing from the oil and gas industry, so they must hear from us as well!
