Onewhocares - thank you for researching the homeowners options. I never would have thought of making Geokinetics go through my mortgage company for permission.
Some of you may be interested in the investigative reports done by ProPublica on fracturing
I just checked the Steamboat Pilot, http://www.steamboatpilot.com/documents/2010/nov/02/routt-county-election-results/, and the Denver Post. They're getting early results. Has the Moffat County problem been resolved yet?
While we can understand the Commissioners' concerns about the State of Colorado usurping the county's power, we cannot understand the Commissioners reluctance to do everything in their power to protect the environment and the public's health. This does not mean "DO NOT drill in Moffat County". This means drill but drill responsibly. Our coal mines are regulated and still operate, why not the gas and oil industries.
The Rocky Mountain News published a special report last week on the impact of oil and gas on the Western Slope. You can access most of the four day report here:
The Denver Post published an article in Sunday, December 16, 2007, about the Mayors from several West Slope communities sending a letter objecting to drilling on the Roan Plateau. You can access that article here:
We suggest that concerned citizens read these articles and take an active part in the approval process.
