Roadless areas leased over protests (unnamed oil and gas co's)

The 14 parcels of roadless Forest Service land leased for energy development Thursday went for premium prices compared with bids on unprotected areas.

The identities of the oil and gas companies that purchased the leases weren't available, officials said.

The 14 roadless parcels, about 14,400 acres and 11 percent of the land drawing bids, were promised roadless protections by the Bush administration in 2005.

"The BLM is on a rampage to lease every acre they can without consideration of the impacts on the public, wildlife habitat and clean air and water," said Jacob Smith of the Center for Native Ecosystems.


No surprise here, gwb and friends don't support the (empty) promises made to protect the environment.

And the article says that the identities of the oil and gas companies weren't available. Hmmmm, I wonder who they could be?

1. And just think, the money taken in will all go for neocon wars
and corporate welfare.

No george, the future will NOT be kind to you and your henchmen. If anything survives in able for this era to become history.
