Wayne National Forest decision ignores science and community to move ahead with leasing plans:
WTAP Parkersurg TV interviews local organizer Heather Cantino, retired natural resources professor Rebecca Wood, business owner Christine Hughes, and Wayne National Forest Supervisor Anne Carey (9-6-12). Note factual error by reporter: it is 13 well sites, not 13 wells that the Wayne plans to authorize. 13 sites can mean 130 wells. Since Ohio law permits all volatile organic emissions (23 TONS per well) to be released directly into the air, air pollution alone may mean 6 million pounds of additional air pollution from well emissions alone. This does not count truck traffic or methane emissions. Also note Risberg’s commentary disguised as fact that the wells are designed to be drilled “safely.” What is the evidence for her statement? Carey’s explanation is certainly not reassuring.
