Letter: Gas leases

Bureau of Land Management, if you think the way to manage our land is to allow filthy rich Texas oil and gas corporations to drill into Mother Earth’s skin, blighting our beautiful landscapes with unsightly oil and gas rigs, fouling the air with toxic methane gas, endangering residents with potential fires and explosions, all for the purpose of extracting a product that is obsolete, easily replaceable by renewable energy sources, the use of which is having potentially calamitous effects on our climate, then go ahead and sell those oil and gas leases in December.
