    Ultragrampa, yes it is important to address the unemployment issue in the Uintah Basin. So many people are out of work here. I suspect the unemployment rate in our area is closer to 10%. People are losing their homes and businesses. My husband has been out of work since December, has applied at 34 different places around town, along with hundreds of others applying for the same few jobs, and still can't find work. We are trying to hang on to our home, but it's very hard. I agree, there should be some kind of diversification of industry here, so that we are not reliant on the ebb and flow of the energy industry. But, in the meantime it is important to get back to work. Loss of employment affects other businesses, retail stores, etc., because with no income people can't buy things. I hope this company can bring some work back to our area.

    @kiddsport - You need to look at more than just the atmospheric temperature. The temperature of the world's oceans is continuing to climb - and the oceans are responsible for more than 80% of the heat absorbed from the atmosphere. Please take a look at the whole situation before drawing untenable conclusions. There may be differences on what to do about it, but there is really no question that the climate is changing and that humankind's CO2 emissions are a large part of the reason.

    @ultragrampa-
    In real news, the average global temperature has not risen in the last 18 years 9 months (Remote Sensing Satellite) while the misinformed continue to pander to the global climate change pimps.

    In other news, world wide average temperatures continue to set records as millions of the uninformed population still deny that unrestrained production and use of hydrocarbons results in climate change.

    Let's get that Uintah Basin unemployment rate down at all costs!!!
