As long as it doesn't produce explosive drinking water, it's probably
okay.But like anything else, it requires careful watching and wisdom
to keep us all safe.We need to always put smarts before profits.
One old man says, "We need to always put smarts before profits." Agreed.
The motives of Utah politicians are always profit-driven. The problem is that
too often those profits end up in the pockets of favored individuals and
contributing corporations. We cannot entrust our public lands policy
or our energy policy to a legislature with direct ties to land acquisition, real
estate holdings, home building and energy development. The potential for profit
robs them of any objectivity and will result in America's public lands
falling into the greedy clutches of a few political parasites and their Big Oil
cronies. If they get their way, you won't recognize this place once
they're through with it, and we'll all be poorer because of it.
