The BLM should protect the 22 parcels from gas drilling not exploit them. If there is gas here in Delta County, there will be gas wells saturating the valley on private lands.
These public land parcels may be the only places that can be saved as undisturbed open space. The BLM has the chance to do something for the long term good of our community instead of the short term gain for gas companies (and Asian countries who are the dominant gas buyers). For the long term economic health of our communities please withdraw all the 22 parcels from lease consideration.
