voluntary disclosure of drunkenness.
Pretty dumb, huh? Well, pay attention, people, because you are playing right into industry’s web of lies.
Any so-called disclosure that is voluntary is NOT really disclosure. It’s a way to fool the public into thinking they are safe and that the industry is being transparent without them actually being transparent.
FracFocus is a voluntary chemical registry. Industry can choose how much or how little they want to disclose. Or, they can choose to disclose nothing at all.
HB 3328 is a bill pending in our Texas legislature right now. This is NOT a disclosure bill. The misinformation on this bill is spreading like crazy and environmental groups are the main offenders! Look, any time you see this…
“Trade secret” means any confidential formula, pattern, process, device, information, or compilation of information that is used in a person ’s business and that gives the person an opportunity to obtain an advantage over competitors that
do not know or use it.
…that means they only have to tell you want they want you to know.
This is WORSE than no disclosure at all!
This is industry’s way to try and avoid a law that forces them to disclose their dirty chemicals. Please don’t be fooled.
