Monday my fellow Earthworker Alan Septoff blogged on the biased mainstream fracking debate, featuring the Associated Press and Kevin Begos.
Today, he’s got more, thanks to the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection:
As an article published yesterday by State Impact Pennsylvania relates, DEP was trying to exclude mention of a peer-reviewed scientific study that showed there’s good reason to believe that – from a climate perspective – natural gas is dirtier than coal.
It’s no wonder that communities across the country are looking to ban fracking. They can’t get a straight answer on its risks.
