Key problem on fracking regs

This is pretty much the heart of the matter on the DEC's utter failure to manage their hydrofracking regulation process:

A salient complaint is that the regulations were issued prior to the final SGEIS on which they were based, forcing the public to evaluate regulations without access to the SGEIS and relevant health and environmental considerations.

Not a good sign, and one that makes a bad joke out of "Department of Environmental Conservation". Perhaps they should change the name to "Department of Environmental Conversation"? They're very good at provoking conversation, even when they attempt to stay quiet.

It would be nice if they'd actually try to figure out the geology first.
