Gas boom: environmental pressure

Posted By on Mon, Jun 30, 2008 at 8:44 AM

Wall Street Journal features the growing conflict between environmental concerns and the push to develop new gas production in the U.S., some in places mostly untouched before by heavy production. (For example: Arkansas.)

Arkansas is not yet listed among the states, such as Colorado, Wyoming, Montana, that have taken steps through additional regulation to safeguard the environment in the midst of heavy exploration pressure. Of course. When polluters run the state environmental protection commission, what do you expect?

PS -- As anticipated, some new pipeline construction was announced today to serve the new gas production in Arkansas. This will provide a goodly number of temporary jobs.
