Don’t These People Have Editors?

Do these people actually have editors who check for logical consistency?

Meanwhile, the Interior Department continues to move at warp speed to lease ever-larger chunks of the Rocky Mountains to oil and gas companies. At least one governor has had enough. Last month, Bill Richardson of New Mexico filed a suit against a Bureau of Land Management leasing plan that he says would leave 95 percent of the 1.8 million-acre Otero Mesa open to drilling. At risk are some of the most important and fragile grasslands left in America, the wildlife they sustain and - of special concern to Mr. Richardson - an aquifer that contains the state's largest untapped source of fresh water.

We must protect these fragile grasslands from being drilled for gas or oil so that we can ruin these fragile grasslands by drilling for water?

To be fair, drilling for oil is rather messy, and probably more messy than drilling for Evian.

Let me guess....

All the money raised by renting the right to drill for oil goes to bEurocrats, and not the residents of the state?

If they got the money DIRECT, I wonder what they'd think about valuable grass?
