I used to live across the street from Fil and Jill in Santaquin. What wonderful
people and he is an excellent Sunday School teacher. Glad to hear that they are
doing well and prospering even if they had to leave their beautiful home in Utah
to do so. It doesn't have to be that way. We have just as much energy
resources here, but their development is hampered by federal rules and red tape.
If only Utah could control it's lands rather than the bureaucrats in DC.
Cutesy story of ones instant wealth they will have for just a short time. Once
they learn the destructive outcome of what the oil boom is about and their
neighbor start dieing off. Lets hear some stories from the original residents
who are the real story behind all the lies of the oil rush greed.Comparison of the oil rush to that of a gold rush is not at all similar. The
gold rush was men with pick and shovel and pans searching for wealth. The oil
rush is all out of sight out of mind subterranean destruction of our earth crust
several miles deep for the benefit or a few wealth overlords who hire miners to
pan for the gold.It take time for gas and toxic water to leach to
the surface and less time to leach into aquifers and water resources. Its not
the wealth of oil we should be celebrating, it the environmental destruction of
the earths crust and all that we have invested in aquifer waters for surface
dwellers to use.Envy and greed are preying on the minds of down
trodden americans who think this is their dream of success.
You need energy but you don't want pollution. Right! When you travel along
California coast, you would notice many sealed oil wells. Yes, California is
stop building any Power Plants for last 30 years. So, where is the electric
power comms from? Neighboring states including Utah. A lot of people are
hypecritical when dealing with the energy needs and pollution controll wants. In
this real world, there is nothing can generate pure energy without any
environmental price, even Wind, Solar, Tide, Geothermal ... What we need is a
well-balanced, scientific sound solution for the energy development.
"My2Cents Taylorsville UT" is too negative and pessimitic IMHO.
