CO Supreme Court Ruling Puts Coloradan’s Health at Risk

Statement from Earthworks Energy Program Director Bruce Baizel

“The Colorado Supreme Court just ruled that Colorado’s public health, safety, and welfare are less important than permitting oil and gas production. And, by intervening in the case against public health, the oil and gas industry exposes the lie in its own claims that oil and gas operations are safe. All eyes are now on the legislature and Governor Polis to amend the oil and gas act to make clear that public health, safety and welfare come first.”
