POC Watchdog

POC will be keeping a careful eye on the corporations, politicians, and other entities involved in energy projects. It is an unfortunate reality that they do not always behave in an ethical manner, and we intend to call them on it when they cross the line. Listed below are links to articles about various misdeeds. You can also keep an eye on your local politicians and corporations by checking donors to political campaigns and lobbyist activities.
