Here are some links to good groups and articles: 350 colorado.org colorado conservation Who's Behind the 'decline to sign" efforts? Great articles by Joel dyer of theBoulder Weekly about the web of donors and lobbyists pushing to prevent any regulation of fracking. second article Third article.      

    Seismic Blasts for Oil Threaten Whales & Dolphins on East Coast

    These suuperloud seismic airgun blasting for oil could injure 138,000 whales and dolphins from Delaware to Florida. The blasts go off every 10 seconds 24 hours a day. They threaten the endangered right whale. I first became entranced with whales when I heard that a group of false pilot whales had beached themselves near Vero Beach, FL. My sisters and I drove there from our nearby grandparents, and we pushed them out as incoming wave slifted them up. Superloud navy sonar and oil exploration seismic blasts have been suggested as the cause of many whale beachings. The blasts can cause hearing loss in the whales. Link Link

    Teach-In on Fracking, Oil Spills, and Climate Change

    On Saturday 4-23-16 from 9 to 5, fascinating speakers will be at CU Math 100 from 9 am to 5 pm. Antonia Juhasz (live) wrote books about oil and Bush. Cornell professor Ingrafffea found that natural gas wells and pipelines leak at a high rate. TEACH IN: Featuring (live via skype) Professor Anthony Ingraffea, one of the world's leading experts on fracking technology. He wrote a paper on the methane ``leak rate'' of fracking wells/distribution which was denounced by President Obama's Dept. of Energy, and subsequently some years after the same folks apologized to Ingraffea. Ingraffea has also attracted attempts to, shall we say, intimidate him -- but he has not backed down and sticks with solid science/engineering. In person, we will have two exceptional investigative journalist/authors: Antonia Juhasz, San Francisco, (``Tyranny of Oil'' and other books) and Andrew Nikiforuk, Alberta, Canada (``Slickwater: Fracking and One Insider's Stand Against the World's Most Powerful Industry,'' and ``Tar Sands'', and other books), They will present talks and do a book-signing in conjuction with the Boulder Bookstore. We will also have local talent from NCAR (Dan Ziskin, on global warming scenarios that don't get press coverage) and others. Lunch available, but not free :)) Link
