Maybe you read the news yesterday that the EPA supposedly changed rules without notice and started requiring permits to inject diesel fuel in our water. The Big Gas Mafia was all indignant about it and Lee Fuller was quoted in several papers saying how unfair and what big old meanies the EPA is.
Yeah, well, they got it all wrong <--insert faked expression of shock here--> in the first publication, then–sans any fact checking–several other media outlets picked it up and it snowballed everywhere: EPA big meanie to Big Gas Mafia! Permit required to inject diesel fuel into drinking water! (I can’t stop laughing.)
Of course, EARTHWORKS’ OGAP sets the record straight on EARTHblog, but I’m wondering if any of those news outlets will bother to print a retraction. Since it’s Friday, and no one is paying attention much, it is up to you, Dear Readers, to make the truth known.
