Nice video but I noticed that Brenda Bowen conveniently forgot to mention that the thin crust used to be a thick crust.

The video, of course. There is very little acceptance of BLM's responsibility in the present salt crust depletion.

I would love to see them try to dig like that with a post hose digger in 74 when I first went.

Dan thanks for sharing the video.  Nice video of the cars but....



... I only see about 1/2 to 3/4 inch of salt at that location.  Sad, sad, sad,

I also noticed the statement that all of the mining extraction is from south of the highway. Willful misrepresentation at best.  angry

I heard that bit (about south of the highway) but i think I did hear the lady add that the feedstock (brine) comes from both sides -- but she didn't mention it 'til after the south side comment.

At worst, more WILLFUL OBFUSCATION . . . . . . .

At best, more BB BS . . . . . .

Propaganda, such as this is, paints the most "optimisty" evaluation of supposed "complicated conditions", (pablum for the woefully uninformed), when in fact, the conditions are not complicated at all.

When you remove something, less is left.     A minus B, equals less of A.

Saaay, we're taking stuff from you, to make it better for you . . . . . . .    Oh, and you get to subsidize the private profits too!!

How . . . .  PERFECT . . . . is this?     "Trickle down" economics in action . . . . . . .    on two fronts . . . . . . .

Funny many see the heaps of salt south of 80 and that leaving in box cars...akin to taxation ..raising the rates (flows) actually does more good ....this extraction is vital to many industries and processes...see our studies ...we are doing our due diligence to ensure we preserving environment very well ...see the crust is still there ...and we actually redepositing millions a year

you just need to trust us with your salt ...we know how to best use it
and redistribute it...

history show us ..if its getting tougher to extract ..... from one area...it will be taken from another

Your tax dollars at work.

I do see an upside to this video - by using it as a promotional tool for the department, it now becomes a tacit, searchable and archival acknowledgement on the part of the BLM that Land Speed Racing on the Bonneville Salt Flats is an activity that they both historically and publically support.

But knowing how videos are put together, what I'd like to see is what was left on the cutting room floor.
