Action Alert! Support Colorado Youth—Our Children’s Trust Petition For Rulemaking

In November 2019, 65 Colorado youth filed a petition for rulemaking with the Colorado Oil and Gas Conservation Commission (“Commission”) calling on the Commission to adopt strict rules to protect public health, the environment, and wildlife from oil and gas development and the climate crisis. That petition, including the specific rules that youth would like to see adopted, are now being considered by the Commission as part of a significant rulemaking effort that will have long-lasting implications for all Coloradans – including you!


Join the 65 Colorado youth that submitted their petition for rulemaking to the Commission and let the Commission know that you support strong rules to protect your health and environment from oil and gas development and the climate crisis. It is important that the Commission knows that youth and parents from across Colorado support strict rules to protect them from harms caused by oil and gas development and the climate crisis.

    Oil and Gas drilling has repeatedly shown an increase in ill health and climate change. Those who live in the vicinity of the drilling have been impacted negatively, and damage to the environment: air, water, wildlife have all been adversely affected.
