While the NYT on sunday ran its now expected tabloid, sensationalist story declaring shale gas to be a ponzi scheme, the Associated Press ran a story by Michael Rubinkam that said this:
"The result is that the Marcellus...has turned out to be an even more prolific source
of gas than anyone anticipated. Energy firms are boosting their production
targets, not only because new wells are coming on line but also because they're
managing to coax more gas from each well."
Please read the whole AP story. It is in tons of papers around the country. Just google: "Associated Press Gushers Marcellus Potential."
So the NYT reporter that wrote a discredited story saying falsely that Pennsylvania's waters were possibly poisoned with radionuclides declares shale gas a ponzi scheme on the same day the AP publishes a story documenting that Marcellus shale production is exceeding expectations.
The scandal remains the NYT reporter who has a track record of sensational, false stories designed to attack natural gas that sacrifice fairness and truth.
