It’s always fun when the frackers can’t get their story straight.
Matt Pitzarella, Range Resources communications director, changed his fracking PSYOPS story three times. When Chesapeake had a blowout, Jim Gipson, Director – Media Relations for Chesapeake, told the media one story but told a concerned Denton citizen a completely different story. We did some informed speculation and later learned we were right about Chesapeake’s blowout in Oklahoma.
This morning was not my birthday nor was it Christmas, but I received a present anyway. Fracking’s Joe Camel didn’t get the memo with the preferred excuse about the EPA backing away from the Range Resources water contamination case in Parker County so he just made up some stuff. Or did he?
Who do you believe?
Deposit your dollar in the sinkhole.

Range Resources told EPA officials in Washington that so long as the agency continued to pursue a “scientifically baseless” action against the company in Weatherford, it would not take part in the study and would not allow government scientists onto its drilling sites, said company attorney David Poole.

Range Resources is not part of the EPA’s hydraulic fracturing study. That begs a pretty important question: How could Range “pressure” the EPA to drop its endangerment order in exchange for participating in the study if Range is not, in fact, participating in the study? (I never link to IED)
