Judge rules administration overlooked fracking risks in California mineral leases
WS – Note the word-smithing…” overlooked fracking risks” . No… The Obama administration broke the law. This is Corporate Media “Fogging”. COMPLETELY IGNORED and OVERLOOKED are not synonymous.
A federal judge has ruled the Obama administration broke the law when it issued oil leases in central California without fully weighing the environmental impact of “fracking,” a setback for companies seeking to exploit the region’s enormous energy resources.
The decision, made public on Monday, effectively bars for the time being any drilling on two tracts of land comprising 2,500 acres leased for oil and gas development in 2011 by the Interior Department’s Bureau of Land Management in Monterey County.
U.S. District Judge Paul Grewal in San Jose ruled that the federal government erred, and violated U.S. environmental law, in declining to conduct a full-fledged environmental impact study of its oil leasing for the Monterey Formation.
