UB Shale Institute in the News Over the Weekend

Late last week, the UB Shale Resources and Society Institute (SRSI) took its website down to do some tweaking after it came under criticism from a number of directions. Late in the day Friday, the amended site went back up, though it now claims to be “under construction” (or “under reconstruction,” as the case may be). You can compare the amended pages with those saved by the Public Accountability Initiative (PAI), here.
Also last Friday—after an AP story was published in papers around the country raising grave concerns about the funding for, and gas industry ties to the SRSI—the UB Reporter issued this prepared statement from E. Bruce Pittman, Dean of the College of Arts and Sciences.
Dutifully, the Buffalo News summarized that statement. But you’ll notice that comments aren’t allowed on the story if you read it on the News website.
No such gag order here at Artvoice. If you have any thoughts on the whole mess, feel free to share, below.
