The Capitol Pressroom for May 25, 2012 | WCNY Blogs.

You know the David and Goliath story – In the version you will hear on today’s show,  David is a 54 year old Canadian scientist by the name of Jessica Ernst .   An unlikely hero in that she worked with and for the petroleum industry for 30 years.  In this story, her Goliath is one of the largest natural gas producers in the world, EnCana.  With Ernst’s diligence, the Canadian Energy Resources Conservation Board has started to pursue EnCana for negligence and unlawful activities.  While the issue is still in court, and none of Ernst’s claims have been proven, she was asked to testify at the UN on the same issue.
