More on Frack-Free Colorado
Frack-Free Colorado is an event taking place at the Colorado state Capitol on October 23rd 4-7PM. According to the organizers, their main goal is to get Gov Hickenlooper "to give Coloradans a concrete plan for a renewable energy future that eliminates dirty industries like natural gas which are polluting our water, our air, making our children and wildlife sick." They also want to galvanize "a broad cross section of people and orgs around an eventual ban on fracking and a renewable energy future."
