Hope folks can join us on Thursday, May 18th for the screening of the film "Battlement Mesa" by Power Surge Productions! This short film documents our efforts to protect Battlement Mesa from irresponsible oil and gas development over the past few years. We'll also hold a short workshop on Ursa's Phase II plans and how residents can properly file complaints with the COGCC.

Marie Mitchell MonroeScary to imagine how an established residential neighborhood with families, seniors and youth with nearby schools and churches can quickly become an industrial site for gas and oil development. Not something one thinks about when settling into what appears to be, and promoted as, a safe place to live, to raise a family or to retire.

Victory! CRA vote defeat

VICTORY: Plan to repeal BLM methane rule goes ‘Up in Flames’

A HUGE WIN this morning (Wed., May 10) as an industry-led attack against clean air rules fails in the U.S. Senate! Three cheers from Western Colorado! #cutmethane

THANK YOU to all of the people who made calls, wrote letters and met with your elected officials on this issue over the past four months. The vote was extremely close and every single thing we did helped win the day.

A special thanks to Sen. Bennet (D-CO) for his vote to uphold the BLM Methane Waste Reduction rule. <<Read more>>

Tipton townhall

WCC members and allies crush it at Tipton town hall in Montrose

Thank you to the 400+ people who packed the Montrose High School gym Friday night, April 7 for Rep. Scott Tipton’s first of three town halls during this Congressional recess. We had a blast!

Great organizing by WCC and several Indivisible groups resulted in a crowd that spoke powerfully and pretty much unanimously on our issues. We sent a strong message to the Congressman with a barrage of smart questions on energy policy, environmental regulations, public lands, health care, budget priorities, the Trump administration and more.

See our photos on Facebook! <<Read more>>
