    Come on out to the Uintah Basin and breath our air. My doctor's office sounded like a TB clinic last week, the nurse said most of the people there were having respiratory and heart problems. Our pollution levels are that of Huston and L.A. on a bad day.

    And then they get the go ahead to start drilling 1300 more gas wells. There's almost no where in Uintah County you can go now that you won't have to deal with the dust, exhaust, noise and equipment of the energy companies. Adding insult to injury, over 200 new well sites with their roads and infrastructure are now set to encroach on wilderness quality lands near the put-in for boats and rafts at Sandwash on the Green River.

    There should be laws against environmentalists.

    Whatever buffer the environmental purists want for the wrinkle road, Canyonlands, or the Dinosaur National Monument needs to be put around the Mount Olympu s wilderness.
    That would mean demolishing much of the development on the east bench.
