Oil and gas industry won’t police itself

Some people think methamphetamine is harmful. But we don’t need a law or agency to control it. The concerned parties should just hold a meeting and draw up a voluntary document agreeing that they won’t abuse the stuff. Problem solved, right? Let the industry police itself.

Oops, I made a typo. But no matter. This letter is in response to the expert op-ed of March 17-18. If the reader will substitute the word “methane” for methamphetamine in my first paragraph you will have my summary of the piece. It should have been printed on April 1.
