In case you missed this earlier, the Trump Administration’s assault on our public lands is getting kicked into high gear. In the crosshairs are public lands in western Colorado that Trump’s Bureau of Land Management wants to hand over to the oil and gas industry for fracking.
While the attack on our public lands is galling, what’s worse is that this giveaway comes as the oil and gas industry is outright attacking the constitutional rights of local activists. The latest is a lawsuit filed against long-time Colorado community advocate, Pete Kolbenschlag. It’s an absolutely shameful and disgusting display of arrogance and greed on behalf of the oil and gas industry, but the reality is, it’s par for the course for oil and gas companies.
If you haven’t, speak out against this public lands giveaway in western Colorado. And while you’re at it, lend some support to the activists who are daring to stand up to the fracking industry. An attack on one of us is an attack on all of us and now is the time to unite in support of clean energy and keeping fossil fuels in the ground.
And while you’re at it, check out the video that our friend Pete Kolbenschlag put together on the lawsuit filed against him and his efforts to protect western Colorado from the grips of the fracking industry.
