Parts of northeastern Estonia have become unusable sacrifice zones that will never recover from the impacts of oil shale mining. As the country with the world’s largest oil shale mining operations, we have lost much of our land, damaged our water and emitted more than our share of carbon into the atmosphere. Yet, our state energy company, Eesti Energia, still tells us that oil sha...

"The well needs to be plugged" -- Utah goes after nonproducing oil wells on federal leases 10.6.2016 Salt Lake Tribune
For years, the Government AF 1 gas well has sat idle and rusting on Burt and Christine DeLambert’s ranch on the southern rim of Utah’s East Tavaputs Plateau.

The Routt County Board of Commissioners voted May 31 to authorize the use of $7,000 in historic preservation funds to permit the digitization and transcription of an additional 111 Three Wire Winter oral history interview tapes believed until recently to be missing.
