Half of today’s show is devoted to pro-fracking interests and half is devoted to anti-fracking interests.
Tom West of the West Law Firm
is best known as an oil and gas attorney & lobbyist, and one of the lawyers who argued against home rule in both the Middlefield & Dryden cases. Today he joins us to talk about why he is appealing, as well as a “newly discovered” Encon memorandum that he claims will shed light on the state’s oil and gas laws.
Then taking a very different view of hydrofracking, Josh Fox, producer of Gasland, says communities in Pennsylvania are taking a cue from New York and fighting back against the state on drilling.
Plus, Claire Sandberg of Water Defense updates us on water issues in Dimock in light of the EPA’s report. And representing a contingent of anti-drillers from all over the state, Rochester’s Harry Davis previews a rally & protest on the issue taking place this afternoon at the Capitol.
