The SEC is asking oil and gas companies to provide information about the fracking process used to obtain natural gas trapped in rocks, which has come under fire due to environmental concerns. The request includes details about the chemicals used and efforts to limit the ecological impact.

    And the SEC knows what, exactly, about fracking chemicals and ecological impact statements, etc.? About the same thing they knew about the rampant fraud taking place in mortgage securities in 2008 and before?


    I thought these jokers were already whining nonstop that they were too overworked and underfunded to properly track the stuff they *are* supposed to be keeping an eye on?

    Has the EPA deferred to SEC? It seems SEC is overstepping. Every one knows SEC does a poor job protecting ordinary folks like you and me. There is evidence on record that it protects crooks and rich folks. There are important cases on their dockets right now. But it ignores and sits on them to protect its own friends. Sen Charles Grassley is doing some thing good exposing the SEC.
