Date:  Comments: 0

One of my favorite songs is a catchy, upbeat American classic from the 1920s, The Best Things in Life are Free.

BP Chairman: “fracking is a great opportunity” but don’t ask us about the risks

Date:  Comments: 0

Today I attended BP’s annual shareholder meeting alongside Fernando Cabrera from OPSur (Argentina). Fernando came to challenge BP’s board on the dangers from their fracking operations. BP’s Argentinian arm Pan American Energy is using fracking frighteningly close to Patagonia’s freshwater supplies and fruit orchards (see our report “BP’s Fracking Secrets” for more on this).

But even as the industry struggles to recoup costs — much less profits — by continuing to borrow and drill,...

Monica O’Connor: Gov. Larry Hogan’s support of a Maryland fracking ban camouflages a pro-fracking policy

Date:  Comments: 0

Gov. Larry Hogan’s policies on fracking — natural gas extraction through the technology known as hydraulic fracturing — are disingenuous.

The truth is that the governor...
