Face for Radio?
For a technology that’s been around for more than 60 years, has been applied more than 1.3 million times, and has compiled an extraordinary record of safety and performance in that time – sure seems like a lot of folks seem to be doing a lot of talking about hydraulic fracturing these days, doesn’t it?
Most of the dialogue has been civil and relatively well-informed, but some of it, we’ve found, consistently fails to meet those standards. Thankfully, the Energy In Depth coalition is well-equipped to “Truth Squad” that misinformation and mischaracterization, put forward the facts as they actually exist, and engage the debate on platforms and in settings that might not have been as readily available to us in the past.
A couple of recent news hits linked to below underscore those efforts.
Energy In Depth – on the radio in New York (Aug. 20, 2009)
Energy In Depth – on the radio in Pennsylvania (Aug. 19, 2009)
Energy In Depth – on the news pages in Montana (Aug. 18, 2009)
Energy In Depth – in the editorial pages in Colorado (August 13, 2009)
With Congress set to reconvene in early September, and anti-energy groups prepared to discharge every arrow in their quiver to prevent the safe, responsible development of clean-burning natural gas, these next couple weeks figure to be as active and potentially contentious as any we’ve had.
We hope you check back to the site often, let us know how we can make it better, and stand with us as we continue to defend an absolutely non-negotiable energy technology in the development of America’s shale plays.
