No Bella Wells: Pack the Courthouse (May 8 Greely CO)

No Bella Wells: Pack the Courthouse (May 8 Greely CO)

Tuesday, May 8, 2018 at 1:00pm. The location is the Centennial Building, found at 915 10th Street, Greeley, CO, 80631.

On March 8, 2018, water protectors and concerned community members participated in a non-violent direct action (NVDA) in an effort to show their opposition to a large oil and gas project attempting to be completed near a school (the largest oil and gas project near a school in the country). Cullen Lobe was arrested as a result of this NVDA, choosing to boldly stand up for the children of Bella Romero, the South Platte River, the community of Greeley, and the earth. His selfless act is now being demonized by Extraction, he is not only facing two criminal charges, but he is the main target of a substantial lawsuit as well.

These charges, and the lawsuit, are both unreasonable and excessive. Extraction hopes to silence all opposition to their hazardous projects and inflict fear into the community—the majority of which vocally disapprove of the proposed project. Join us at his first court date to show support for him and those who choose to stand for more than financial gain. Join us as we stand united in the face of Extraction and say NO BELLA WELLS.

RSVP ON FACEBOOK HERE! 

Hope to see you there!

A Breif History of Polisnelli Law Firm

The time has come for us to shine a light on the real power behind fracking in Colorado: The Polisnelli Law Firm. The great enabler of fracking in Colorado - from Greeley to Lafayette and Paonia - is the Polisnelli Law Firm located at 1401 Lawrence in Downtown Denver. It is Polisinelli that helps Extraction influence state senators, it is Polsinelli that sues activists (such as Cullen Lobe and others that participated in non-violent direct action at Bella Romero Academy in Greeley, Colorado) and tries to intimidate and silence communities. It is Polisinelli that uses its vast legal resources and influence to engage in mineral right's exploitation that rapes and poisons the land and the civil rights of those who us who try to respect and live in harmony with the earth.

Film on Environmental Footprint of War (April 25 Fort Collins CO)

We are inviting community members whom we believe are committed to environmental health and responsible government to join us on Wednesday, April 25 at Avogadro’s Number for a showing of the film, “Scarred Lands and Wounded Lives: The Environmental Footprint of War.”

This compelling documentary exposes the unprecedented scale of damage resulting from war which has been ‘largely underestimated, under reported, even ignored’ and argues for public scrutiny of the ecological and human impact of war as essential to a more sustainable and secure world.

Thank you for sharing the attached flyer and information below with local 350.org groups and those whom you feel would be interested in this event.

Join us for the free showing of the one-hour documentary film Scarred Lands and Wounded Lives, The Environmental Footprint of War.  After the showing, we will discuss the role of peacemakers and other advocates in calling for the reduction of environmental exploitation resulting from war and armed conflict, and the role of the US military – ‘the elephant in the room.’

Wed., April 25th from 5-7pm at Avogadro’s Number, 605 S. Mason St. 

Sponsored by concerned citizens with support from the Fort Collins Community Action Network.  For more information contact us at info@fccan.org

We'll need your help on May 7th to tell the AQCC that downtown Colorado Springs is no place for a dirty coal plant, but first, we have to get organized and informed. Join us at Jack Quinn's to learn more about the AQCC and Martin Drake's Title V permit, where we see the coal plant is violating air quality standards, and how to testify at the upcoming hearing!

Hi everyone at 350 Denver – my name is Maggie and I look forward to meeting you on March 13! In the meantime, I wanted to tell you about this event. I booked a time with Sen. Gardner's office to talk about climate change. We have 30 minutes with Annie Larson (Regional Director- Denver Office). I'm looking for four other people who would like to join me that Thursday morning 10-10:30am to discuss climate change. I was thinking we could have five people total, each taking five minutes to talk about a certain issue – like permafrost, or water, or the effects of climate change in Colorado in particular, etc. 

I've done this kind of meeting with the Sen.'s office before – about net neutrality – it's not super stressful, in my opinion. Basically, you just talk with the staffer for a bit about the issue and perhaps submit some paperwork at the end like like I was thinking a signed statement from all of us about what350.org is calling for:

* No new fossil fuel projects.
* A fast and just transition to 100% renewable energy.
* Not a penny more for dirty energy.

Are you informed and able to talk eloquently about the issue of climate change? Then please join me!

Hello Friend,

 

In 2017 there were constant assaults on our climate and communities from the Trump administration and their fossil fuel billionaire pals. From the revival of Keystone XL to climate disasters in Puerto Rico, Houston, California and beyond, this has been a year of unprecedented climate devastation.

 

It’s also been a year of unprecedented climate resistance, and we’re just getting started. On January 31, the day after Trump’s first State of the Union, we’ll be hosting Watch Parties along the Front Range for a powerful livestream we’re calling Fossil Free Fast!

  • Discuss state environmental legislation

  • Ask you to sign the Colorado Rising ballot petition for safe setbacks for oil/gas wells

  • Continue to resist the Trump Administration’s ongoing attacks on our climate and communities

  • Build power towards the 2018 and 2020 elections

  • Unite to secure the lasting change needed on climate through effective local campaigns, including passing Fossil Free resolutions in your city or town

This will be a great opportunity to hear from amazing climate leaders from across the county and to meet other people in the local climate movement. We’ll discuss what’s going on right here in Colorado, and you’ll hear from many other grassroots organizers and movement leaders, who will unveil a clear roadmap for our movement in 2018 and beyond.

Special PTA Meeting with Fracking Panelists (Jan 18 Lafayette CO)

  • Pioneer Bilingual Elementary School (map)
  • Google Calendar ICS

Drilling Operator 8 North LLC (Extraction) is preparing permits to frack up to 20 wells for oil and gas products in an area that includes our school. Although we don’t yet know the exact spacing of the wells, we know our school and playgrounds will be within a zone of scientifically proven risk to human health and safety. Please come and learn more from experts about this very important issue. Spanish translation will be provided. Child care for Pioneer families will also be provided.

Panelists will include: 
Lisa McKenzie, PhD, MPH, Dr. McKenzie’s research has contributed to the understanding of how air pollutants and other exposures resulting from the unconventional development of petroleum resources may affect the public’s health. Her studies investigating associations between adverse birth outcomes and childhood cancers and proximity to oil and gas development are among the first epidemiological studies on this topic to appear in the published literature. Her sentinel human health risk assessment indicated the potential for respiratory, neurological, and developmental health outcomes resulting from exposure to air pollutants emitted during natural gas development. 

Stephanie Malin, PhD. Stephanie is a sociologist of environment, globalization, and development, focusing on community-level outcomes of natural resource development. Her main interests include environmental justice, environmental health, social mobilization, poverty, and political economy of energy development. Stephanie examines how these variables intersect in rural communities across the American West and Northeast.

Joseph Ryan, PhD. Joe Ryan is a Professor and Bennett-Lindstedt Faculty Fellow in the Department of Civil, Environmental, and Architectural Engineering at the University of Colorado Boulder in Boulder, Colorado. He is the faculty director of the National Science Foundation-funded AirWaterGas Sustainability Research Network, a multi-institution team addressing the effects of oil and gas development on air and water resources in the Rocky Mountain region.

December COGCC Hearing (Dec 11 Denver CO)

Please join us at the December COGCC hearing to give three minute public comments about fracking in Colorado! We need your help to keep the spotlight on this issue as we head into the new year.

At the last COGCC hearing in October, over 70 Coloradans spoke up against fracking at the COGCC hearing in Denver. The public testimony lasted over four hours, got great media presence and the COGCC to delayed the approval of some controversial fracking permits near Broomfield homes. 

Fracking is making it's way into our communities faster than we could have ever expected, but our efforts are proof that when we stand together, our voice is one to be reckoned with. 

As the tide of public support around fracking continues to turn, we need your support to continue our momentum forward. The more people that we can continue to turn out for these meetings to speak on behalf of our public health, safety and climate, the better chance that we have to push policy that protects us. We want the COGCC to see the impacts of fracking, up close and personal.

Contact outreach@350colorado.org with any questions or if you want to get involved in helping plan this project!
