A brave politician, defending his constituents (not really)

Bradford County’s own Douglas McLinko references outdated, critically discredited study to back up the intimidated gas drilling industry. Phewww. They were nearly ready to collapse under PA’s regulatory burden until he jumped to get their back.

Congress and the EPA apparently did not consult with McLinko. The 2004 EPA study that he cites was never accepted by the scientific community. As such, it is being revised. Hearings have even happened right down the road from Mr. McLinko. Here you go sir: http://water.epa.gov/type/groundwater/uic/class2/hydraulicfracturing/index.cfm.
