I do not have a problem with holding government accountable. But I also believe that honest discussion is required. You, and your anti oil and gas cohorts, are not about honest discussion. Instead you cherry pick information and use it to prove your false claims. You spread misinformation.
You have given a perfect example of misinformation.
You, and the others in the anti oil and gas crowd, fail to share the fact that many of the "complaints" came from areas where there is no oil and gas activity. In other words there are other reasons for problems with well water.
Further, another fact omitted by you and the others is that the DEP works diligently to investigate each so called "complaint". You do not share the results of those investigations. The result is that the DEP has not found a "Systematic Impact" on drinking water from oil and gas activity. in particular shale development.
You also imply that the information had been purposefully withheld. It was not. The Freedom of Information Request was the first request made by the group and the DEP graciously complied. It isn't as though numerous requests had been made and ignored. Just more misinformation.
BTW, the map you shared is not accurate. This is not surprising since it was produced by biased people.
It's great that there are organizations out there to keep government honest.
But this organization has not presented anything new, These are the same unfounded claims and unproven that have been made in the past.
So an avowed anti-oil and gas organization goes on a crusade to prove a preconceived conclusion, and we are suppose to accept it as fact, right? No. It is not a ture investigation, instead it's a collection of misinformation that has been presented in the past. It's a re-run, we've seen it all before and has been completely debunked.
An example of the misinformation provided by this group is the number of complaints. First: complaints are not proven instances. Second: many of the complaints are repeats, thus inflating the number. These are only two of the numerous problems with this
This is not a scientifically conducted study which has been peer reviewed and should be ignored. If the conclusions were true and accurate where is the lawsuit? Obviously someone at the DEP has done something illegal.
Don't hold your breath, there will be no lawsuit. This is just another hit piece intended to promote the antioil and gas narrative.
The Public Herald is spreading this scaremongering on Facebook trying to make a new mountain out of an old mole hill. I posted some factual rebuttals, but they just brush them off. Complainers, whiners, whatever you want to call them are doing themselves a disservice...they just don't know it yet. Wait until midterm elections come and go, then they will be joining the burn the city down crowd.
