Emitimos en exclusiva nacional una entrevista con el estudiante de la Universidad de Utah, Tim DeChristopher que nos explica cómo llegó a “comprar” 22.000 acres de terreno en un intento por salvar ese terreno de la perforación para la exploración petrolera. La venta había suscitado una gran oposición por parte de grupos ecologistas.
