Crowdsourcing hydrocarbon pollution monitoring in shale areas using passive sampling

Laurie, I hope you are not affected by H2S smells, or are not sensitive. I think it is only a "money-smell" when one can choose to avoid it ... I do not know yet whether the SC or other environmental NGOs are viewed "not kindly". What I do know is that the industry created their own "thinktank" organization early on, and that organization is denigrating the work of these NGOs, and any scientist(s) working with them, vigorous and frequently. Many politicians and advocates for the industry repeat that organization's talking points, at times verbatim, without much reflection. It will be interesting to see how that develops.
