I do not want to blog about this so…
Read about it on Politico.
The White House has released an executive order that will coordinate the administration’s activities on natural gas. It creates a working group that includes various White House offices such as the Council on Environmental Quality and National Economic Council, as well as agencies like Interior and EPA.
Here is Earthworks’ statement:
“While we support the Obama administration’s efforts to protect air, water, communities and public health from the impacts of gas drilling, no amount of coordination changes the facts on the ground. Loophole-riddled laws and inadequate and underfunded enforcement passes the heaviest costs of drilling onto communities.”
