Fracking Montana and Wyoming’s Beartooth Front

December 20, 2013 • Pete Dronkers

In October, Energy Corporation of America's CEO, John Mork, made a huge mistake.  In a press conference, he declared that he would like to "bring something like the Bakken" to areas surrounding Red Lodge, on the flanks of Beartooth-Absaroka Wilderness, and then added salt to the wound and announced that it would "fundamentally change these areas the way it has changed other areas of the United States."

Mr. Mork is exactly right -- it would fundamentally change these areas.  If his plans succeed, folks can expect to see changes in the scenic landscape, and in crime rates, road conditions, the affordability of rent and food, and perhaps most importantly, changes in the clean water and air currently enjoyed in the area.
