Letter: Experience tells of fracking’s ills

Letter: Experience tells of fracking’s ills by Judith Brink, February 2, 2013, Times Union
In response to the editorial, “Drill deeper, New York,” Jan. 15, I would like to suggest personal experience trumps scientific studies, particularly when the studies are commissioned by the entity known to be hurting us and refusing to be transparent (in the name of protecting its “proprietary information”). We are not ready — and I believe will not be until transparency and accountability become an industry standard — to go forward with fracking. … An experience referenced in an Associated Press investigative report released Jan. 16 details how Range Resources protested a federal Environmental Protection Agency’s investigation into water well contamination in Texas. The EPA decided to drop the investigation. Does that fact alone not cause us to pause? [Emphasis added]
