Dr. Sandra Steingraber, The Environmental and Health Risks of Fracking , Thursday October 4, 2018, 7 pmI was stimulated to act and to care by her writings. I liked her book Living Downstream.
The Cube at MCA in Stapleton 8371 Northfield Blvd, Denver, CO 80238The State of New York took a hard look at the science on fracking and now has a statewide ban on fracking. The documentation is at https://www.dec.ny.gov/energy/75370.html (SEQR is State Environmental Quality Report) The State of Colorado continues to equivocate on the science and we have an estimated 50,000 fracking wells and all of the environmental, health and public safety issues that accompany all those wells... One of the key scientists that helped drive the New York process is the acclaimed Dr. Sandra Steingraber, and... SHE IS COMING TO COLORADO NEXT WEEK.... Please Pass the Word to Your Networks--Thanks! (More information below.)
Clean Energy Action
will be hosting
(along with 350 Colorado and other climate action allies)
acclaimed ecologist and author
Reception with Dr. Steingraber--5:30-6:30 at The Cube
Suggested Donations $30 Reception and Talk $20 Public Talk Only
Larger donations if you can afford them will be appreciated.
No one will be kept away from the public talk for lack of funds.
We want everyone to hear the science on fracking!
Dr. Steingraber's website is http://steingraber.com/
The 2014 New York review on the scientific and health impacts of fracking that led to the NY ban is at
The Physicians for Social Responsibility review of the environmental and health risks of fracking is at the link below. Dr. Steingraber is a co-author.
While the Colorado Department of Public Health and the Environment ("CDPHE") continues to equivocate, others that have taken a hard look at the science have recognized the rapidly growing body of studies that outline the risks of fracking and natural gas production.
Dr. Steingraber will help us understand what the science is telling us about fracking and natural gas production.
Please pass the word to your networks.
For most of us, this is a "Once in a Lifetime" opportunity.
Hope to see you there!!
Thanks as always

Biologist Sandra Steingraber, PhD, said:
“What impressed us, as we reviewed and compiled the data, is just how extensive the impacts from drilling and fracking processes are. Spikes in toxic air pollution accompany fracking wherever it goes. Drinking water is destroyed. Earthquakes are triggered. Abandoned wells leak. Pipelines explode. Climate-killing methane escapes from every component part. And nearby residents are suffering health problems consistent with their exposures—including newborn infants.”
