ABSTRACT
The article presents the author's views regarding the hazards and the rapidly expanding natural gas boom in the U.S. Conservationists and landowners are facing these natural gas boom for years. On private lands, they have found some ways for the prevention of any company that owns the subsurface mineral rights from bulldozing roads and well pads on the surface. Conservationists have also stepped up their protests in response to the leasing frenzy, and convinced the Bureau of Land Management (BLM) to slow down in places.
