"The Forest Service plans to submit a rule that would make it easier to explore oil & gas drilling, as well as mineral mining, in Natl. Forests.

'The industry has a very bad history of money going into it and never coming out'..." And "fracked oil wells show a steep decline rate" - not good for the bottom line. https://www.nytimes.com/2018/09/01/opinion/the-next-financial-crisis-lurks-underground.html
