An In-your-face Rush On Coalbed Methane

The rush to develop energy in the Rocky Mountain West creates conflict between private surface and sub-surface property rights.

"It's a struggle that was set in motion more than a century ago, when the federal government "split the estate," distributing land to homesteaders while holding onto the mineral rights or selling them to industry. Today, the West's growing population and demographic changes, with more people moving onto the land for its vistas and lifestyles, conflict wit the industry's rush to drill for coalbed methane."
