There's more than one way...

Posted By on Sun, Jan 4, 2009 at 4:28 PM

to stop natural gas drilling.  A University of Utah student, Tim DeChristopher, strolled into a Bureau of Land Management auction in Utah and bid $1.8 million for 13 parcels of land in order to keep those tracts safe from drilling.  He now faces felony charges.  DeChristopher never intended to actually pay for the land.  Now he's looking to raise $45,000 to hold onto it and keep it safe from drilling until Obama gets into office and there's a personnel change in the BLM.  Three websites are trying to help him out: www.wateradvocacy.org, oneutah.org, www.bidder70.org.  I wouldn't put it past the Conservation Alliance's Rod Bryan to try something similar.  We'll see what happens.
