Please submit your comment on the BLM's plan for oil shale NOW! We don’t know if oil shale will ever create jobs. We do know that oil shale has created problems in the West and we don’t want to repeat those same mistakes. In the past 100 years of industry efforts to develop oil shale – during which not one barrel of oil has been commercially produced – Colorado communities have been subject to the economic devastation wreaked by failed attempts. Meanwhile, some industry pundits will have us believe that oil shale is the answer to our economic crisis.
Tell the Bureau of Land Management to pursue options that protect our public lands from dirty fuel development! Instead we should focus on cleaner energy sources for our future.
