Colorado has some of the strictest regulations in the country. These tough regulations, coupled with an ever-increasing supply of clean-burning natural gas, make Colorado a leader in responsible energy development.
Here are just a few environmental wins thanks to fracking:
- Carbon Dioxide Emissions: Natural gas unlocked by fracking helped cut U.S. carbon pollution to 20-year lows.
- Methane: To tackle the second most dangerous greenhouse gas—methane—Colorado passed first-in-nation regulations that will cut emissions by 60,000 tons per year.
COLORADO WITHOUT FRACKING
Anti-fracking measures in Colorado would eliminate responsible energy development by reducing the world’s supply of clean-burning natural gas.
