Monday, August 3, 5 p.m.: Coloradans Against Fracking invites you to join us at the Weld County Admin. Building, 1150 O Street in Greeley. Representatives of CAF will be there to issue a declaration to the COGCC that will also be sent to our Governor.
Background: As you may know 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; providing more evidence that the COGCC works for the industry they are charged with promoting, not for the citizens with whom they are charged with protecting.
These proceedings are not open for public comment but the public can attend.
We know that any comment relating to the damage being done to us and our communities by oil and gas development will continue to be ignored.
The COGCC already knows what is happening and
THEY DON‘T CARE!
They don’t care that our air is polluted.
They don’t care that our ground water is polluted.
They don’t care that we get sick from toxins.
They don’t care that our homes are being ruined.
They don’t care that our communities are unsafe.
The COGCC may claim the right to force extreme energy extraction and policies on our communities and our lives, but CAF proclaims
Meet the representatives of CAF near the front entrance of the building for more information on this important action event.
Thank you. See you Monday.
