(An issue near and dear to my heart. A bit short and lacking detail to promote, but recommended. I was considering a diary on this myself…but will promote one from someone else that provides more detail-CT).
Last Friday, late in the day, the BLM decided it would lease almost all the acres in Colorado’s North Fork valley for oil and gas under a land use ‘plan’ cobbled together, and predicting exactly ZERO oil and gas development in the North Fork, sometime back in the last millennium.
The agency issued a 280+ environmental assessment and gave the wineries, the ditch companies, the farmers, ranchers, Selenium Task Force and the 3,000 local residents that bothered to comment 30-days (including Thanksgiving) to file protests.
