EPA goes after smog-causing gunk in drilling regs

This is certainly a positive development. But how about “conservation” in the first place? Like turning the lights off? And what about the fragmentation and outright destruction of wildlife habitat that accompanies nearly every new natural gas well? Why no media attention to that fact? Duh.

  1. Where I live in Marcellus Shale-land, they are about to do the 3-D seismic testing. The local paper has posted that they’ll have to clear small paths through wooded areas for the workers’ safety. But 4-6 feet is huge for our salamanders. And this is in addition to the very wide swaths for the pipelines, and the acres cleared for well pads. The poor bears, deer, bobcats, etc. are really going to be affected by the fragmentation.
