Drilling for CO-2 in US West Threatens American Indian Artifacts
Worried about Carbon Dioxide? Now they're looking for MORE! Believe it or not.
Anasazi sites and artifacts endangered by search for Carbon Dioxide!
...a giant new project to drill for carbon dioxide is gathering steam on the (Canyons of the Ancients National Monument, Colorado) park’s eastern flank. Miles of green pipe snake along the roadways, as trucks ply the dirt roads from a big gas compressor station. About 80 percent of the monument’s 164,000 acres is leased for energy development.
Indian leaders, who link modern tribal populations in the Southwest to the ancestral Anasazi, have mounted a campaign to stop the local exploration for carbon dioxide, which would be used to help rejuvenate old oil fields that are now stirring to life in Texas and elsewhere as oil prices soar.
