Colorado Supreme Court Ignores Will of the People and Overturns Fracking Ban

DENVER, Co. - Today, the Colorado Supreme Court sided with the oil and gas industry and overruled Longmont and Fort Collins’ measures to prevent fracking in both communities.

In response, Sierra Club Executive Director Michael Brune released the following statement:

“Today’s decision is deeply unsettling. The Colorado Supreme Court has now ruled that corporate polluters’ profits outweigh the will of Coloradans who have said ‘no’ to fracking and ‘yes’ to a safe environment for their communities.
