Oil Industry Creeps Up On Chaco Communities
KUNM Call In Show 2/12 8a:
Oil and gas development may be moving closer to Chaco Canyon National Historical Park and the many tribal communities in northwestern New Mexico. Residents there, along with archaeologists and advocates, are questioning the burgeoning development.
What effect might encroachment have upon these communities? What about nearby ancient sites? How can we strike a balance between modern day energy needs, healthy communities and the preservation of ancient sites?
We want to hear from you! Email firstname.lastname@example.org, post your comments online or call in live during the show.
