On April 30, Federal Energy Regulatory Commission (FERC) Commissioner Tony Clark expressed annoyance at the exaggerations on both sides of the hydraulic fracturing debate. Addressing a Natural Gas Roundtable event, Clark warned that the increased production of natural gas will raise both environmental and “a dash to gas” concerns. He also said many criticisms of state regulations are not based on science. Clark said that every energy source poses challenges, not just natural gas.
