“I would like it to be a win/win situation here (in New York),” he said. “In Texas, it’s win-lose.”
Report from a resident:
The local reporter who covers this stuff stayed for the whole time at both events, 4-5 pm for muni officials and 7-9 pm for general public, I have never seen him stay for the whole thing before.
Topic brought out some DBD folks, some of whom were unruly. We had arranged for a couple of cops as a presence and the noisy ones soon shut down.
Tonight in Dimock, PA. Panel with industry guy. One of the lead lawyers for the Dimock lawsuit will be in audience. Run by LWV.
“Attacks” were few and seemed to be around: benzene, hey it is in diesel exhaust, etc, etc (they didnt get the ESL measure and like that).
Some attempt to say “can you back up the science.”
The co-presenter Helen Slottje, a pro-bono env atty from up this way (lead atty on Schlumberger service facility in Horseheads, NY – ducking environmental review) was also spectacular. First coherent presentation of “risk analysis” related to O&G that I have seen, read, or heard that was reasonably easy to understand.
