Citizens Knowledge of Frac'ing Grows

Appearing in the Post Independent op-ed section this week was an excellent letter from Scott Cline, of Stanley, NY. The premise of Cline's submission was to refute claims (May 5, Post Independent) from a hydrologist, Dr. Tom Myers, who had recently claimed that frac'ing contaminates groundwater.

Cline's letter was especially relevant because he holds a Ph.D. as a petroleum reservoir engineer and geologist, and has spent 30 years in petroleum reservoir modeling, assessment and fluid flow analysis.

We encourage you to read the full letter, which is an excellent example of informed citizens who have stepped up to educate their fellow neighbors on the truth behind frac'ing and the importance it poses to our nation's energy dependence.
