Tell Your City, County & State Elected Leaders to Endorse a Phase Out of Fracking!

Time estimate: About 3 minutes

The oil and gas industry is the largest contributor to the climate crisis and ozone pollution in Colorado. Fracked oil and gas wells leak methane – which is 80 times more potent than CO2 at warming our planet. The UN and the International Energy Agency have both said we need to stop new drilling immediately if we want to keep global temperature rise to 1.5 degree Celsius.

Join us in writing to ask our elected official to support the Safe & Healthy CO ballot initiative to phase out new fracking permits by 2030. Endorsements from your officials will make a huge difference in this effort!

Feel free to use our pre-written message, or edit it and add your own thoughts, ideas, and story if you have time.

In addition to being CO’s #1 source of GHG emissions causing global heating, oil and gas production releases dangerous chemicals into the air and water, increasing health hazards for Coloradans.
