Ok at first this article made no sense.
"The House voted 224-198 against the ban, originally pushed by the Clinton administration. The Bush administration decided to allow the machines to
stay in the park, most of which is in Wyoming."
Then I remembered the interview by Vallhall...
This quote from the USGS rep caught my attention. "In general, there are many, many things that can contribute to the signals on seismograms. These
include of course earthquakes, but also wind, passing cars, snowmobiles that we call cultural noise."
Perhaps thats the reason for not approving a ban. 900 jobs. Who would actually believe that? I believe the reason is to cause distortions in the
data. To make it more difficult for joe average to spot trouble lurking. The USGS could just say that any apparent swarm was just "noise".
The 2nd part of the CNN story should be just as disturbing.
"The House also defeated an attempt to halt the killing of bison from Yellowstone each year to stop the spread of disease to cattle if the bison
wander outside the park."
You have to be kidding me. If there are problems with diseased bison they should be taken care of before they spread it to other bison in the park.
I do not believe for a moment that this is the real reason they are killing the animals. I think this is to hide problems in the park. People are
going to notice if animals that size are leaving the park. A potential warning sign that time may be up.
Maybe I'm off on this but these two items concern me.
