Stand up for your community.
Our work with Larimer County
In March, we presented the first in this ongoing series discussing air quality issues along Northern Colorado’s Front Range. In that session, experts detailed the nature of our poor air quality, with discussions of different ways of monitoring it and how it affects everyone’s health. You can view a recording of that informative session at this link. A few months on, and the American Lung Association has once more issued a failing grade for our air in April. As well, the EPA has listed counties up and down the Front Range to be in varying degrees of non-attainment of clean air standards.
Sign on: Demand Air Quality Monitoring in Fort Collins and Larimer County
Colorado Rising & the Larimer Alliance will once more host an online webinar on Wednesday, June 15, at 6:00 PM
We’ll highlight the nature of our poor air quality and what is being done to get a handle on it. As in the March event, we will feature experts in the monitoring field, as well as elected officials from Northern Colorado communities that have already implemented comprehensive real time air quality monitoring. Our speakers will then join with other officials and staff from various agencies to discuss how to more effectively utilize the data for community alerts and potential enforcement action.
PROTECT LOVELAND FROM TOXIC FRACKING
Our work with Loveland
The best available science warns us that fossil fuel development (and “fracking”) will only increase our already poor air quality, threaten local water resources, burden taxpayers, and speed up the catastrophic effects of climate change. Fracking your neighbors in Loveland will have far-reaching impacts on all aspects of our lives.
