Phase Out Fracking

June 10th

Day of Action! Statement from 350:

Scientists around the globe have called for a rapid phase out of new fossil fuel development in order to keep global temperatures below 1.5C and prevent the most catastrophic climate impacts. Impacts like the increasing drought and wildfires we see here in Colorado.

Despite that, we see our leaders here in Colorado and across the nation, continue to permit more fossil fuel development. About 1,000 new fracking permits in Colorado each year! It’s time for this to end.

On June 10th, Coloradans across the state held direct action events in their communities to call for a phase out of fracking in Colorado. Oil and gas fracking in Colorado is the #1 source of pollution causing the climate crisis and the ‘severe’ ozone air quality issues along Colorado’s front range. To achieve our climate goals and our environmental justice goals in Colorado, we must phase out fracking!

To support the Phase Out Fracking Movement, RMPJC went to Colorado Springs on June 10th to support the Nuclear-Free Pueblo Coalition and help get pledges for the Ballot Initiative! RMPJC spoke with many members of the Colorado Springs community and had wonderful conversations and sign-ups.
