Fracking is destroying our public's health
Understand The Risks
The Compendium of Scientific, Medical, and Media Findings Demonstrating Risks and Harms of Fracking (Unconventional Gas and Oil Extraction) documents over 2,000 peer-reviewed studies that have pointed to negative health outcomes and issues related to living in close proximity to o&g operations.
Fracking is jeopardizing our public's safety
In 2017, there were over a dozen Oil & Gas related fires and explosions in Colorado alone.
The most well-known tragedy is the home explosion in Firestone that killed two men, severely injured a mother, and forced a small child to jump from a window to escape with his life.
Although oil & gas operations can take place as close as 2000 ft (or closer) to homes in Colorado, emergency responders have stated that the evacuation radius for oil & gas leaks and explosions is typically anywhere from 2500ft to over a mile.
