I attended "Marcellus Shale: The Science and the Policy", a Town Square program, hosted by The Academy of Natural Sciences in Philadelphia ( PA-USA) last evening.
Dr. Terry Engelder of Penn State University was one of the presenters/panelists.

I wanted to wretch. The other interesting twist was a direct attack on Cabot Oil & Gas.
Important point: The two slides above are from Dr. Terry Engelder's presentation. Who does he work for again? Does PSU support his attack on Cabot Oil? Is litigation a potential response?
Hmmmmm....BIG OIL throws one of its own under the bus. Let the feeding frenzy begin.
More thoughts in a future post.
Off to yerk...
