WITHDRAW BLM OIL/GAS LEASES FROM COLORADO’s PREMIER ORGANIC FARMING REGION

1 Comment

WE THE PEOPLE

we petition the obama administration to:

WITHDRAW BLM OIL/GAS LEASES FROM COLORADO’s PREMIER ORGANIC FARMING REGION AND UPDATE BLM’s 25-YEAR-OLD LAND USE PLAN

Tell BLM: Don’t Open Colorado’s Organic Farms to Oil and Gas Drilling/Fracking

Western Colorado’s North Fork Valley is Colorado’s only rural winery region  and has the state’s highest concentration of organic farms and ranches. It is an intimate mixture of private, small family farms–many certified by the USDA as organic–and public lands, including many managed by the BLM.

The BLM is an agency within the U.S. Dept. of Interior that manages most of the public’s minerals. BLM once wrote a land use plan for the area, twenty-five years ago. Now it seeks to use that plan–even though it never even considered oil and gas development in the North Fork to be much of a possibility–to open the area for drilling and fracking.

Finish the land use plan update and take these leases off the table

Collecting rainwater now illegal in many states as Big Government claims ownership over our water

3 Comments

(NaturalNews) Many of the freedoms we enjoy here in the U.S. are quickly eroding as the nation transforms from the land of the free into the land of the enslaved, but what I’m about to share with you takes the assault on our freedoms to a whole new level. You may not be aware of this, but many Western states, including Utah, Washington and Colorado, have long outlawed individuals from collecting rainwater on their own properties because, according to officials, that rain belongs to someone else.

As bizarre as it sounds, laws restricting property owners from “diverting” water that falls on their own homes and land have been on the books for quite some time in many Western states. Only recently, as droughts and renewed interest in water conservation methods have become more common, have individuals and business owners started butting heads with law enforcement over the practice of collecting rainwater for personal use.

Check out this:

a news report out of Salt Lake City, Utah, about the issue. It’s illegal in Utah to divert rainwater without a valid water right, and Mark Miller of Mark Miller Toyota, found this out the hard way.

Fort Carson, critics fight over heavier Pinon use

The Pueblo Chieftain
Posted: Sunday, June 27, 2010

By PETER ROPER | proper@chieftain.com

   Fort Carson will be sending two battalions of the 4th Infantry Division to the Pinon Canyon Maneuver Site in August for several weeks of training – signaling an Army effort to increase its use of the 238,000-acre training ground, even as critics argue that effort defies a U.S. federal court ruling last year.

The Bureau of Land Management has just announced that it will close the Indian Lake Roads holding pens to public visits beginning in June.  Apparently the documentation of the horrendous conditions at the facility and the deteriorating condition of the horses including multiple deaths, poor food, lack of shelter and the climbing death rate of foals (which the BLM does not count in its inventory) is just too much of a hassle for them.  More

Colorado ranchers cheer as feds back off on livestock ID system

The Denver Post

02/16/2010

Colorado farmers and ranchers are cheering a U.S. Department of Agriculture decision to back off plans for a controversial national animal identification system aimed at stemming livestock disease outbreaks.

Lee Swenson, executive director of the Rocky Mountain Farmers Union, which represents about 4,000 farmers and ranchers in Colorado, Wyoming and New Mexico, said many of the union’s members feared the National Animal Identification System would add to government waste, while doing little to prevent disease and ensure food safety.
