Yesterdays & Today's EPA Webinar on Plan to Study the Potential Impacts of Hydraulic Fracturing on Drinking Water Resources

On November 3, 2011, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency (EPA)
released its final Plan to Study the Potential Impacts of Hydraulic
Fracturing on Drinking Water Resources. The agency will be offering two
webinars open to the public and all interested stakeholders on
Wednesday, November 9 and Thursday, November 10. See below for times
and links to register.

Wed, Nov 9, 2011 3:30 PM - 4:00 PM EST

Thu, Nov 10, 2011 3:15 PM - 3:45 PM EST

EPA is working to better understand potential impacts of hydraulic
fracturing on drinking water resources. In March 2010, EPA announced its
intention to conduct the study in response to a request from Congress.
Since then, the agency has held a series of public meetings across the
nation to receive input from states, industry, environmental and public
health groups, and individual citizens. A draft study plan was released
in February, 2011. The draft study plan was reviewed by the Science
Advisory Board (SAB), an independent panel of scientists, to ensure the
agency conducted the research using a scientifically sound approach. In
response to recommendations from the SAB, EPA has revised the study plan
to have more focused research questions and provide additional details
on research projects outlined in the plan.

After reading this I doubt the EPA has scientific integrity.
