At times in the past week, Colorado’s Front Range has experienced the worst air quality of any major city in the world. A combination of smoke from massive wildfires in California and ground-level ozone pollution from cars, trucks, and oil and gas drilling here in Colorado has resulted in the worst air quality in years, a reminder of the days of the “brown cloud” we have tried so hard to escape.

The consequences of man-made climate change are now impossible to avoid in Colorado. It’s time to start making the tough decisions necessary to decarbonize our economy.

Colorado’s largest utility company, Xcel Energy, is moving slowly, possibly too slowly, to close its fossil fuel plants. Tonight at 6:00 pm, our friends from Colorado Sierra Club and 350 Colorado are conducting a training session to help you effectively advocate on Xcel’s resource review process and accelerate the rapid transition from Colorado to renewable energy.

In this latest installment, we’ll hear from Earth Justice and Carbon Tracker on how to solve this problem. We will discuss the data Carbon Tracker has found and how we plan to present this information to the COGCC during the rulemaking hearing. We will also talk about how the public can stay involved in the process and provide their own input to the Commissioners.

Colorado Caregivers Unite: Time’s Up, Caregiving Can’t Wait!

After more than a year of unimaginable hardship and trauma, the crisis for healthcare workers has reached a breaking point. We come together to listen to workers and decision makers to make sure the state hears our call: WE DEMAND ACTION! In January, we filed a petition asking CDLE to investigate wages and working conditions in this industry and to convene a wage board. For months, despite our calls, emails, and visits, the state has refused to respect our rights; they have refused to act. Today we are here to tell you: Time is up. We demand that the state comply with state law and give workers like us a seat at the table and a voice in decisions that impact our lives!
