After Colorado once again failed to meet the Environmental Protection Agency's deadline to reduce ozone pollution in, CoPIRG launched the #CleanAirColorado campaign to tackle the state's dirty air problem.
At the Aug. 18 launch event for the campaign, CoPIRG called on local, state and federal officials to work collaboratively on expanding clean transit options to combat the emissions from gas and diesel-powered vehicles. Since transportation is one of the region's largest sources of ozone pollution and greenhouse gas emissions, there has never been greater urgency for action on the issue.
“The gravity of our air pollution problem requires a significant increase in the clean travel options people have soon," said Danny Katz, CoPIRG state director.
"We need all levels of government to collaboratively weave together a set of strategies that fuel each other. No one entity or policy will solve this problem. We need unprecedented collaboration and focus to clean up our air,” said Danny.
