I will continue to update this post as new information is available.
A newsflash from Josh Fox:
NEWSFLASH. URGENT. Today there is an important fracking hearing in DC. The House Subcommittee on Energy and the Environment will hold hearings on EPA’s testing in Pavillion Wyoming. Josh and his crew are being told they cannot film the hearing. CALL OR EMAIL CONGRESS NOW! Tell them Josh should be allowed in to film the hearing. It’s guaranteed in the first amendment! Call!!!
Committee Contact Form:
Eye witness accounts coming soon on EARTHblog.
Comment from Earthworks’ Facebook page:
And after this happened, the senior chairman of the subcommittee, Mr. Miller, made a motion to let Josh back into the meeting. But…since there weren’t enough members of the committee present to have ua quarum, the whole thing went into recess. If you wanted to express your anger, find out who else was supposed to be there and send them asking why this wasn’t important enough for them to attend! At the end of the day, this will probably go on Josh’s record and cost him $$. That isn’t right!
I agree with another commenter, they have the wrong guy in handcuffs.
So the House Republicans become the paid protectors of the frackers and help the Big Gas Mafia hide their dirty secrets from the American people.
The committee made their agenda clear with the hearing’s title: Fractured Science – Examining EPA’s Approach to Ground Water Research: The Pavillion Analysis.
