The Obama administration tightened regulations on the oil and gas industry Wednesday, requiring drillers to capture emissions of certain air pollutants from new wells.

But in a nod to industry concerns that the rules were being enacted too quickly, the Environmental Protection Agency said companies can burn the pollutants at the well head until the start of 2015, when enough equipment is expected to be available to capture the pollution.

The real truth is that the companies WANT to capture the gas and have been developing the technolgy for their industry...It's what they do!!! COLLECT GAS !!!!

In other words...the EPA chiming in is a farce...

Read the article, been doing this kind of work for 35 years and have no idea what volatile organic compounds they are talking about in quantities enough to be deeply concerned about. This is nuts.

The blogs were right on Monday, they said that within a week EPA would implement rules to shut down operations... three year extension my butt.

We can’t survive another four years of these loons.
