EPA proposes new emissions rules
In a nutshell, the rules would reduce emissions by requiring drillers to use existing technologies. As a side benefit, these technologies collectively help increase the amount of gas produced, which is part of why some companies are using them already.
Personally, I think these are welcome efforts. We've discussed the air quality issues in the region before, and minimizing the impact of gas drilling on air quality is a good idea. It also makes gas a more competitive energy source from a global warming perspective (escaped gases can cut back significantly on what otherwise are large benefits from using gas instead of petroleum and coal).
