Is the EPA coordinating with Hollywood?
Institute for Energy Research – 3/4/2013

Buried in a tranche of official emails related to the Environmental Protection Agency’s enforcement action against Texas-based Range Resources is an exchange between former EPA Region 6 Administrator Al Armendariz and other senior administration officials that raises new questions about EPA’s collusion with anti-hydraulic fracturing activists.

On Jan. 4, 2011, former EPA communications officer Betsaida Alcantara and Associate EPA Administrator Seth Oster corresponded with Josh Fox, producer of a widely discredited 2010 documentary ‘Gasland,’ about the director’s request to interview Administrator Armendariz for an upcoming film.  In the exchange, Armendariz notes, “it was good working with [Fox] for Gasland,” and goes on to suggest a place in Fort Worth where the director can get “good background shots.”

“These emails are yet another example of the degree to which the EPA works closely with well-funded activists and Hollywood producers in coordinated propaganda campaigns against energy producers,” IER President Thomas Pyle said. “With Gina McCarthy’s nomination to succeed Lisa Jackson now in play, the American people deserve answers to serious questions about the agency’s cozy relationship with environmentalist provocateurs like Josh Fox.”
