There are 3 comments on CAS Prof Investigates “the Mother of All Gas Leaks”

  1. This massive leak of a major greenhouse gas, methane, also poses long-term damaging effects on our atmosphere as well as the immediate acute health reality. It reinforces still further the need for institutions like our own, Boston University, and thousands more to vigorously help move communities citizens, regional governments to renewable safe sources such as wind, solar and controlled algal biogas. Any continued policy and planning formulations that are fossil fuel dependent must be called into question in every sector of society at this point. Much gratitude to my extraordinary colleague Nathan Phillips for his continued commitment to this critically important issue. He and our very future deserve our active help.

  2. Bob Ackley is riding the back of the gas companies for profit . He was let go from a gas company many years ago . Who accredits his training ? Not the state ! The Dpu monitors major gas companies and makes sure they have proper equipment , training , and repairs .. this guy is a joke he works out of his house .
