POLLUTION IN YOUR BACKYARD: COLORADO FRONT RANGE ENVIRONMENTAL ISSUES   

This four-week lecture-discussion course is designed for individuals with an interest in how environmental issues impact living along the Colorado Front Range. The air we breathe, the water we drink, the products we use, and the recreation sites we visit – what are the environmental challenges that we need to understand as residents of the Front Range? Is it safe to visit Rocky Mountain Arsenal or Rocky Flats wildlife refuge areas? Why is Roundup still sold at home garden centers? Is radon infiltration of homes a serious health risk? What is the risk from exposure to ‘forever’ chemicals? How does oil/gas fracking in Weld County impact the Denver metropolitan area? Is the infamous Denver ‘brown cloud’ of the 1970s and 1980s returning? Is Suncor the most significant pollution source along the Front Range? No science background is assumed or required.
