Colorado Did It First

Colorado Did It First

More than a third of the snowpack in the Rocky Mountains has disappeared since 1982. Last year, Denver saw less rainfall than Phoenix, Arizona. And longer and more intense wildfire seasons are threatening the health and safety of Colorado's communities. The climate crisis isn't on the horizon. It's here. And Colorado needs to fight back.

Five years ago, Colorado became the first state to directly regulate the oil & gas industry's climate pollution — and ever since, the state's economic growth has exceeded projections. Now, it's time for Colorado to take this crucial leadership to the next step.

The Air Quality Control Commission has proposed a new rule to further minimize pollution from oil & gas facilities. Take action today, and make sure they finalize the strongest possible standards!
