"Shortly Determine"

The DEC seems to be inching toward that late summer SGEIS release they'd suggested earlier. It's climbed to 4000 pages, and the DEC Commissioner still seems convinced he has science on his side.

I'll have to see what the geology section now says before concluding whether or not the DEC actually paid much attention to science. The last round was pretty awful, in ways I suspect would have landed it in "reject" or "major revisions" if given any kind of scientific peer review. In this case, of course, Governor Cuomo seems to be the only 'peer' who matters, though I won't be surprised if citizens and the courts beg to differ.
