Stop The Drilling?
Looks like they're going to start up an old natural gas well in the Eel River Valley. I guess they started it back in the 60s but the price of natural gas back then didn't make it worthwhile to continue.
I'm wondering what sort of resistance there might be to this plan? After all, there are a number of people around here that, it's safe to say, hate the "extraction industries"- one local blog commenter saying a little while ago that's why he wants to get rid of supervisor Roger Rodoni. To paraphrase: He supports the extraction industries.
Seems to me we already have some natural gas wells up here. I believe there were some down by Salmon Creek(?) that were pointed out to me when I was on a timber cruise back in my forestry class days. I believe I might have seen some marked on a topographic map of the county some years ago, too.
So what will we get any with any protests for natural gas wells; Well sitters instead of tree sitters?
