A few years ago I spent some time reporting on oil and gas issues in Wyoming. Mostly about the ways big energy companies impact private citizens, like this one, by poisoning their land with drilling, fracking, chemicals, noise, smoke, gas, anxiety, fear. The stories are infuriating, shocking, heartbreaking. They were then. And with the EPA's current gutting, one line of protection for everybody, and for goat farms like this one (yes, this is a goat farm) will be seriously compromised. The story I wrote was also about individuals who took matters into their own hands to protect themselves. Heroes. Happy Earth Day to them.
