Clean Energy Action is thrilled to join 350 Colorado for: “Stop Fracking Our Future!”
When: Sunday, Sept. 29, 4-7pm
Where: Anthem Community Park at Siena Reservoir (15663 Sheridan Pkwy, Broomfield, CO 80020)
What to bring: Water bottle, a drought-resistant native, edible or pollinator plant, bush or fruit/nut tree, planting tools, an old pair of children’s shoes (for an art project showing the # of children impacted by fracking), and lots of friends and family! (Please carpool or take public transit if possible.)
Neighborhood fracking is poisoning Colorado communities and accelerating the climate crisis. From methane leaks speeding up climate change to devastating health impacts on frontline communities and the entire region’s F-grade air quality – it is time we put an end to fracking in Colorado.
Please join us to show your support! This will be an exciting action culminating the Climate Strike Action Week, with a range of activities for everyone!
***Live Music by Tierro Band Trio with Bridget Law (of Elephant Revival)***
***Face painting and other activities for kids***
***Food & Drinks***
***Build a community garden to absorb carbon and create a positive alternative vision for our future***
***Sign petitions calling for no new fossil fuel infrastructure, including stopping permits for fracking, and a rapid transition to 100% renewable energy***
***Help educate and activate community members about the dangers of fracking and an alternative renewable energy future***
Please also join us for another Climate Strike Action Week frack event: Sept. 25, 8:30 Youth Press Conference, Rally & COGCC hearing. All events happening Sept. 20-29 can be found at www.ClimateStrikeActionWeek.co.
Thanks and see you there!
THURSDAY OCT 4TH 7:00 PM
THE CUBE at MCA, STAPLETON
Clean Energy Action will welcome acclaimed ecologist and author Dr. Sandra Steingraber to speak on the detrimental health effects of fracking and natural gas production.
Join Dr. Steingraber, CEA and our allies as Steingraber dives into the hard science and overwhelming evidence regarding the serious health effects associated with fracking, followed by a Q&A.
In speaking about a recent study released by the Physicians for Social Responsibility about the adverse health effects associated with fracking, Dr. Steingraber stated:
“What impressed us, as we reviewed and compiled the data, is just how extensive the impacts from drilling and fracking processes are. Spikes in toxic air pollution accompany fracking wherever it goes. Drinking water is destroyed. Earthquakes are triggered. Abandoned wells leak. Pipelines explode. Climate-killing methane escapes from every component part. And nearby residents are suffering health problems consistent with their exposures — including newborn infants.”
Steingraber was named Woman of the Year by Ms. Magazine, a Person of the Year by Treehugger, and one of 25 “Visionaries Who Are Changing Your World” by the Utne Reader.
There will be a gathering near fracking sites in Commerce City at 3:30 p.m. with Dr. Steingraber before the speech (press invited), as well as a reception with key energy leader at 5:30 at The Cube, MCA.
We highly encourage your participation in this educational evening if you are interested in learning about the hard facts and research-based science that uncovers the adverse health effects of fracking. In the current political climate, thoroughly investigated facts and information are imperative now more than ever.

Say Enough! to Fracking
Monday, August 3rd, 2015
Weld County Administrati
1150 O St., Greeley, CO
It’s time that we say, “Enough!” to fracking!
Join Coloradans Against Fracking (CAF) in action at the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (COGCC) hearing in Greeley, where CAF representatives will issue a declaration to the COGCC that will also be sent to Governor Hickenlooper.
The Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (Colorado’s regulatory commission on oil and gas development) is meeting with representatives from local governments to discuss the implementation of two recommendations from the Governor’s Oil and GasTask Force. These recommendations will become regulations that are both dismissive and dangerous to our communities and our state.
#17 defines the size of well pads within our communities. #20 allows oil and gas to dictate where within our cities they plan to drill in the future, so that space would be held and available for them to drill. Neither give local governments or citizens any protection from extreme energy production. Both serve the industry, not the citizens with whom they are charged with protecting.

Dear Governor Hickenlooper follows the story of fracking throughout Colorado, is largely narrated by “the Fractivist” Shane Davis, and was filmed by a number of award winning Colorado-based film makers. Following the screening, there will be a quick panel discussion including Davis, Mary Smith from the Boulder Community Rights Network, Suzanne Spiegel from Frack Free Colorado, an alternative energy solutions subject matter expert and one more TBD. There will be an update on the status of Longmont’s own historic ban, and the fight the city is waging against oil and gas industry determined to overturn it. There will also be a discussing some solutions including the various ballot initiatives now gathering signatures that would allow greater local control over oil and gas development and enshrine this right within the state Constitution thus ensuring that local municipalities will have supremacy over state control. There will also be a discussion about the movement to take Boulder County to home rule by ballot initiative that would allow citizens to restrict fracking in the county.
The event will feature well-known local and regional musicians playing before the 68 minute DGH film for approximately 45 minutes, then show the movie. The subsequent Q&A panel discussion would last for about 20-30 minutes and other musicians would play afterwards with dancing and general merriment until closing time. Also present will be volunteers from various environmental and anti-fracking non-profit, grass roots organizations who will be gathering signatures for the ballot initatives, as well as t-shirt sales for Fractivist, tabling by Frack Free Colorado and other supporting organizations.
