This is what I wrote to each Longmont City Council member today:
Dear Council member …:
Please renew the contract with Boulder Air during this Tuesday’s council meeting. Although I live in Fort Collins, I think it is important to continue monitoring the air quality at the Longmont and Boulder stations. I and other Ft Collins residents will be urging our city council to support creating such monitoring stations here. In fact, there should be a network of such recording stations throughout the Front Range, because this technology developed by Dr. Helmig is the only way we are going to be able to tell how much of our ozone and VOC pollution is coming from oil and gas operations, as distinguished from vehicular traffic.
As you will see when you go to the Longmont City Council webpage, you will have to email each member individually, in the popup form that is attached to their name. If you copy and paste your message though, it goes pretty fast. Good luck!
