Wrong. A fracking company HAS volunteered to participate in EPA’s study.

Sometimes, you are wrong. Not inaccurate. Not mischaracterized. Just wrong.

Unfortunately for me, that is what I was in describing the fracking industry’s universal unwillingness to participate in prospective testing (before drilling/fracking and after) case studies in the Environmental Protection Agency’s research into the impacts of hydraulic fracturing on drinking water sources.

Because it turns out, as was recently reported, that Chesapeake Energy has in fact volunteered to cooperate with the EPA.

The good news, of course, is that the public will get important information as the EPA carries out its important work. And I'm not wrong about that.

@EricaGrieder @NYGovCuomo I do not agree. NIMBY implies preferring it still occurs somewhere.
