Last year the BLM lost in court before a Bush-appointed judge re: Roan Plateau.  The agency didn’t close it to drilling.  The agency was sued and lost because it had failed to do its required job.

Also, the judge did not cancel the leases, she found that the BLM failed to properly consider alternatives that would keep most of the surface activity off public lands atop the Plateau. 

Thus 1) It was not BLM, it was a judge appointed by President Bush that ruled AGAINST the agency; and 2) The area has not been ‘closed.’  People are entitled to their own opinions, but not their own facts.

I recently flew over the Roan Plateau on an EcoFlight excursion. Anyone who believes there is no oil and gas activity there probably believes in Santa too.
