    My family has some land in Chevlon Canyon Ranch. Not worth much, at all, and it looks like its about to get more worthless. Got this alert from the Association this morning about action about water intensive (what water?) fracking on the way to extract helium. Petition against at the bottom if you are interested.

    There is no way any industry should be allowed, ever, to destroy limited natural resources for its own personal profit. Certainly not destroying the only potable water in a large area during a drought.

    They are going to frack the petrified forest? I cannot believe what is happening, it's so frigging crazy.

    Next, just watch, if they can, they will start mining in the Grand Canyon. That goes all the way back to Teddy Roosevelt when he made the Canyon a national park to protect it from mining and grazing. Imagine if Trump had been President then. The Canyon would be a shithole now.

    Exactly. Fracking is bad enough, but to do it in areas where water is scarce is ridiculous.
