    “Researchers now recognize that the ongoing natural gas development in the region has a lot to do with that trend. There are an estimated 5,000 oil and gas wells in the basin, which includes the lucrative Jonah and Pinedale Anticline fields in southwest Wyoming.”

    Well duh!

Quote

‎"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
