No gold stars for BDCP

In response to the Federal agencies evaluation of the BDCP, Natural Resources Deputy Secretary Jerry Meral was quoted as saying in a recent LA Times article, “It is important to remember that regulatory agencies by their nature do not give out ‘gold stars’ for work, but road maps for improvement. We will continue to follow that map.”

We cannot help recalling that these recent critiques of BDCP made by Federal agencies are strikingly similar to the 2012 Red Flag Documents released by Federal fishery agencies, and echo comments made before that by the National Research Council. Clearly, as the BDCP is not based on sound science or economic analysis, the road map is not being read by leaders in the Resources Agency.
