We're not attorneys but other successful bidders in earlier BLM drilling auctions didn't get tried or go to jail for failure to pay. The Huffington Post provided a reasoned perspective on the sentencing and related events here. Whatever the merits or demerits of the trial, we do agree with the sentiment expressed by these climate demonstrators awaiting the verdict outside the courthouse: [caption id="attachment_5949" align="aligncenter" width="1024" caption="Climate demonstrators (source: file photo)"][/caption] What will the future say are the real climate and environmental crimes being committed today?
