“When we were talking to the county commissioners about this, they said, ‘Oh, well, you can always sue them.’ And I thought, ‘you’re kidding, right?’ I said, first of all, ‘who’s got money to sue an oil company?’ and, secondly, I’ve heard of people suing who die before the suit is ever settled! And meanwhile, they’re living with all this, the damage is done, and then they die. So the oil company wins. So, no, suing an oil company is not a viable option. You have to think of other ways. But it’s the helplessness that you have, that you cannot do anything, and that’s why groups like Carbon County Resource Council and WORC and Northern Plains are important, because they help us see that we’re not helpless if we all band together. If we all work together, and educate more and more people to what’s going on, then you can effect some change.”
