The New York Times reports that
The New York State attorney general, Eric T. Schneiderman, filed a lawsuit against the federal government on Tuesday to force an assessment of the environmental risks posed by drilling for natural gas in the Delaware River Basin.
“Before any decisions on drilling are made, it is our responsibility to follow the facts and understand the public health and safety effects posed by potential natural gas development,” Mr. Schneiderman said
Who knows what the outcome will be, but it’s great to see some figureheads pushing back against the gas industry.
Wouldn’t it be refreshing if everyone agreed that a proper assessment and understanding of the potential impact is required before drilling for unconventional gas is allowed to commence anywhere?
Say NO to Shale Gas: because if you don’t you will only be upset later – and I will only say I told you so.
