Last week, representatives from the British Embassy in Washington, D.C., as well as the British Consulate-General in Denver, visited Western Resource Advocates’ Boulder office.
Our recent report, “Fracking Our Future: Measuring Water and Community Impacts from Hydraulic Fracturing,” caught the British government’s attention and prompted them to add Western Resource Advocates as the only non-governmental organization stop during the British Embassy’s Colorado visit.
We learned that as in the United States, many in Britain are concerned about the potential environmental impacts of drilling and fracking operations to groundwater supplies and communities. During the delegation’s visit we also discussed renewable energy development, climate change and a wide range of shared issues.
The visit reminded us that we can build relationships with caring people around the world who share our mission to protect everyone’s land, air, and water. See photos on Flickr .
