Pinedale energy development article on CNN
July 25, 2007
Pinedale, Wyoming, and the nearby natural gas development, made the news today in an article on CNN online. The article, entitled, Energy, wealth and wildlife: Wyoming looks for harmony, was written by Ashley Fantz of CNN. There isnít really anything new in this article which brings out all the same discussions about the struggle of balancing extracting natural resources to meet the energy needs of a demanding nation, with the resulting negative impacts on the environment and to wildlife populations, and the boost in jobs and to the economy of Pinedale and Wyoming. But the comments at the end of the article, which readers have posted in response to the story, have some new perspectives on various sides of the issues.
There is also a video Slide Show related to this story in which several locals make an appearance and have audio clips.
