Drilling for Gas in Desolation Canyon 2.8.2010 NewWest.Net All Headlines
The feds OK'd natural-gas drilling in Utah's pristine, roadless Desolation Canyon in the Green River basin. So why is Interior Secretary Ken Salazar calling it an outstanding example of digging through a National Historic Landmark to get to some of the state's largest gas fields? Bill Barrett Corp. is going under and not over wild areas in a deal cut, in part, with enviromentalists. The energy company will spend billions to drill directionally, instead of straight down through rock and has, additionally, scaled black the number of drills: 626 instead of 807, hidden in folds of the landscape, according to an Associated Press story by Paul Foy.

Million’s Dream: A Pipeline Too Far 6.4.2010 NewWest.Net Development
Developer Aaron Million is selling his proposed 500-mile water pipeline from Flaming Gorge Reservoir on the Utah-Wyoming border to the Front Range as a win for everyone, from thirsty Front Range communities to farmers to fish.  If you buy that, I’ve got riverfront property in the Mojave Desert to sell you.  The public isn’t hearing enough about the very real economic and environmental pitfalls of this multi-billion-dollar pipedream.

How Ted Turner Scored Yellowstone's Bison Herd 6.4.2010 Truthout.com

Yellowstone buffalo, despite being on the verge of extinction, have virtually no protections in the West. And media mogul Ted Turner's going to cash in on it.
