Company Shutters Utah Lithium Operation at the Great Salt Lake – By Lincoln Brown (PJ Media) / Feb 9, 2024
Utah is home to mountains and ski slopes. I’m not a hunter, but I am told that there are spectacular hunting opportunities. I like skeet shooting, but cooking a clay pigeon takes forever.
Utah is a great place for anglers. I used to ice fish and could almost always count on limiting out on trout. Unfortunately, Mrs. Brown is not a fan of trout, so my ability to claim to be the mighty outdoorsman feeding his family from the bounty of nature was severely curtailed, except for the one time I brought home a bass.
Unbeknownst to many, Utah is also the home of energy deposits, including coal, natural gas, oil, oil shale, and tar sands. The first three were Utah staples for years. Oil shale and tar sands have had tough times getting off the ground. And with the advent of the Obama administration, laws, and protests by environmentalist groups have often hindered energy production. Their efforts have included litigation with the support of lobbyists.
