"But a panel of experts not tied to industry told a large audience at the American Association for the Advancement of Science annual meeting here yesterday that the primary concerns can be solved if drilling and gas companies would impose tougher controls on their own operations, and if regulators would stiffen safety rules and crack down on violators who break them."

You expect them to do what??!!

What industry ever comes clean? Coming clean would be a novel approach and Fracking could lead the way.

Inspect what you expect and measure what you expect. These guys are only interested in the end not the whole process.

Agree with JamesCalvin from Pa-They just use their big money to coverup issues. I still agree that there SHOULD be a way to meet safety, water, contamition issues etc SAFLEY and still make a profit along with tapping the gas, but seems the companies just really do not care.

Good article, but it will never happen because it contains "R" words that republicans are allergic to;

Require

Regulation

Resistance

Getting leases through dishonest landmen gets public relations off to a bad start.

See this GasBuddy article

Does "coming clean" include publishing actual results from well test like from my friends farm well in Pennsylvania?

Here is what he said:
"We have two wells on the farm (190 acres). We had a detailed baseline water testing done on both before any of the gas activity happened in our area.

We subsequently have had another 6 or so tests done on these wells. (It is crucial to have certified baseline testing done prior to any activity by gas companies or they will claim there is no proof they are the cause and argue it was a pre-existing condition.)

We also retained a very competent hydrologist (who has the gas company clients) who was the plaintiffs hydrologist in the Dimock, PA contamination (highlighted in the movie Gasland).

The well for the barn/and original farmhouse was so contaminated with methane they thought it would explode so the well pump was disconnected for six months and water was trucked in by the gas companies for the animals, and spring water for the humans!"

Not sure about this, as the earth quakes aren't good and they ARE human caused related to fracking.

ConocoPhillips is the third largest integrated energy company in the U.S. and the fifth largest refiner in the world.

The article says a "panel of experts not tied to industry" reported on a "new study" from the Energy Institute of the University of Texas that was funded by ConocoPhillips.

$1,500,000 sounds like a connection to me!
