On Monday I posted OGAP’s press release about the water contamination in Pavillion, Wyoming that is under investigation by EPA. A couple of days later, industry issued a response that is perfectly described by Jennifer Goldman on her new blog EARTHblog:
Industry immediately took issue with our press release reporting that EPA confirmed residents’ suspicions: water contaminants in Pavillion include known hydraulic fracturing chemicals. Industry’s almost hysterical response to this statement is more of the same: deny, block, and delay.
This response to industry’ hysteria is the inaugural post to EARTHblog. Go read it for an excellent example of how to respond to a rogue industry.
Well, Frack! EPA Water Investigation in Rural Wyoming Strikes a Nerve with the Oil and Gas Industry
