    These posters act like the energy companies are out to destroy something and without the enviros, they would loot and pillage. Nothing could be further from the truth.

    As the sign for Temple Square says: Come and see. Much of the development over the past few years is on state land and privately owned land. SUWA and its friends have no reach there, and you cannot tell where the federal land starts/stops and the state land start/stops.

    Companies have excellent environmental staff and use the best available technology they can with or without the enviro groups.

    While SUWA is smiling about this one, I don't think it is because the drilling permit was given. There is probably more to the story....

    This is a refreshing story. It seems that most times we here about environmental groups criticizing new ventures and business folks criticizing environmentalists. Hopefully, this will serve as a model of practice that can help us meet our energy needs while conserving those unique landscapes that add significantly to our quality of life.

    See, if people use some sense, energy extraction and environment can co-exist.

    Glad to see that oil companies are finally starting to realize that they do not have to destroy the world in order to extract fossil fuels.
