‘Fracking’ bosses would choke if tables turned

http://www.dispatch.com/content/stories/life_and_entertainment/2012/05/29/fracking-bosses-would-choke-if-tables-turned.html
“How’s the meatloaf?” the fracking executive asks the waiter.

“Excellent,” says the waiter.

“There aren’t any peanut products in it, are there? I’m allergic to peanuts.”

The waiter explains that the chef doesn’t disclose the ingredients in his meatloaf, because it’s proprietary information.

2. Exactly what happens with privatization of any services, even life and death ones. Great thread.

5. One problem with the analogy. These guys have the CHOICE to walk out

of the bar/ restaurant.

When your neighbor allows drilling the minimum distance from your property line, you have no choice. Sure, you can TRY to sell your house and move away, but you will find your home is no longer worth as much as it used to be.

8. Not to mention that if someone tries to buy it, they may not be able to get a mortgage!

What a fine mess Governor Corrupt has made.

7. The server date on that file is March 20, 2009. So it's at least that old.

http://files.dep.state.pa.us/OilGas/BOGM/BOGMPortalFiles/MarcellusShale

I'm skeptical that the information in that file is still both current and complete. If all of the up to date information is public then why are companies so concerned about confidentiality? Why are doctors required to sign confidentiality agreements?

That's an old file with outdated information.

10. Confidentiality agreements

In my experience aren't worth the paper they are printed on.

11. There is a newer site

There is a newer site where companies are asked to post chemicals that are used - unless they claim they are trade secrets. Then a doctor or medical researcher has to sign the confidentiality agreement before they can see them. The law could be interpreted to say that the doctor could not even tell his patient what chemicals are involved.

9. Reminds me

The situation reminds me of the owner of a particularly noxious polluting industry who sued to try to stop a wind farm from being built offshore from his vacation home at Matha's Vinyard.
