Pinedale, WY people fume on ozone. Casper Star Tribune. By Chris Merrill.

. . . the result of the industrialization of Wyoming’s open spaces by the gas industry.

This is a specific example and it fleshes out the earlier post on this web site, Recovering From Wyoming’s Energy Bender.

    Why didn’t the original EIS “daylight” these pollution issues prior to the development of these gas & oil fields? It appears that they are learning as they go & the original EIS is not worth the paper it was written on. Or maybe those responsible for preparing the first EIS did not “daylight” the effects because the project would not have been approved if all the facts were known.

‎"At some point we must draw a line across the ground of our home and our being, drive a spear into the land and say to the bulldozers, earthmovers, government and corporations, “thus far and no further.” If we do not, we shall later feel, instead of pride, the regret of Thoreau, that good but overly-bookish man, who wrote, near the end of his life, “If I repent of anything it is likely to be my good behaviour."

~ Edward Abbey
