Letter to the Editor: Environmental group plans

Editor:

Since the mid-1960s when the first environmental groups reared their ugly heads every one figured, "if we ignore them long enough they'll go away."

Well everyone was wrong. These controversial groups had an alterior motive to pull off and they are dedicated to their plan. The plan was to bring all federal land under their total control and to make the United States of America totally dependent on foreign oil. But to bring this about they needed to connive the federal government to work for them.

So they found a few representatives and senators that were on the same wave length and from this came the Wilderness and Endangered Specie Act. Both acts have set aside many millions of acres. The Endangered Specie Act is our own in house, weapons of mass destruction. Our Utah delegation in Washington voted for these acts.

The Endangered Specie Act has forced sawmills to shut down and nearly every oil lease issued or application to drill for oil or gas has been appealed. Have you as a gasoline or diesel user voiced a concern to your congressmen opposing these ridiculous appeals?

Headlines in our stateside daily newspapers read, "Congress again ponders Red Rock Wilderness Act."

If passed it will lock away 9.5 million acres in Utah of which many contain billions of cubic feet of natural gas, coal bed methane gas, crude oil, and thousands of acres of coal.

Citizens who do not call their congressional delegation, grin and bear it when gasoline makes another five cents per gallon. The local enviromentalists have changed their minds too. They want more than the original agreed upon 3.2 million acres of wilderness. They now want 9.5 million acres.

When all federal land is closed to drilling, and a few more foreign countries refuse to sell oil to the United States, we will then become totally dependent on foreign oil. We will become a self-defeated nation.

The time is now for you, the gentle reader, to call your Washington Congressmen and voice your opinion. For in the end point the of the game they are play is to make the United States of America totally dependent on foreign oil. Wake up Americans and tell the environmental groups enough is enough.
