Physicians, Scientists & Engineers Question the Obama Administration's Decision to Hand Control of EPA Pavillion, WY Groundwater Study Over to the State of Wyoming with Funding From Encana Corp
Physicians, Scientists and Engineers for Healthy Energy (PSE) believes the Obama Administration's decision to hand control of their Pavillion, WY groundwater study over to the state of Wyoming with funding from the O&G industry will result in an investigation that lacks credibility and will promote public distrust. This development aims to ignore the EPA 2011findings that evidence of fluids associated with gas development was found in a groundwater aquifer.
PSE Sign On Letter to President Obama re: LNG Export Facilities
PSE facilitated a petition signed by over one hundred medical and public health professionals that urges the Obama Administration to delay any decisions regarding the construction of new liquified natural gas (LNG) terminals for the large scale exportation of shale gas to foreign nations. New LNG export facilities will accelerate shale gas development in the United States and the potential for harm to health and the environment from this novel energy production method has not been fully examined. More rigorous scientific and epidemiologic studies are needed before the Administration makes any significant policy decisions related to shale gas production and exportation.
