Cancel the "prescribed burn" at Rocky Flats

To be delivered to President Donald Trump and Governor John Hickenlooper

Petition Statement

U.S. Fish & Wildlife Service must cancel the "prescribed burn" planned for the Rocky Flats National Wildlife Refuge in the Spring of 2015. Doing the burn will endanger public health by releasing plutonium particles.
There are currently 2,137 signatures. NEW goal - We need 3,000 signatures!

Petition Background

The Rocky Flats National Wildlife Refuge, managed by U.S. Fish & Wildlife, occupies most of the site of a now-closed nuclear weapons plant. During almost 40 years of production the plant released highly toxic plutonium into the environment. The Superfund cleanup of the site left tiny plutonium particles in the soil. The proposed burn would make particles available to be inhaled, the worst way to be exposed to plutonium.
