Powershift Keynote Speech: Tim DeChristopher
April 18, 2011
A little over two years ago, .. Tim DeChristopher put it all on the line when he entered a federal auction and derailed it so that oil and gas companies could not destroy one of the most beautiful and unique areas on the planet.
Posing as a legitimate bidder, the then 27 year old student bid on, and won, the rights to thousands of acres of federal land, which, as it turns out, surround and abut some of the most incredibly beautiful, dreamlike landscapes on the planet, at Arches National Monument.
Now he’s been convicted, and will be sentenced, for that crime.
His story was the most popular post on this blog ever, by a long, long, long way.
