    Congratulations on what looks like it was a fun and informative night.

    At IOPS Victoria, Australia, we are involved in a campaign against the Trans-pacific Partnership too. In fact, I think IOPS is well placed to take up this campaign in a bigger way.
    We've the advantage of being a part of a global organization with members in 11 of the 12 TPP states — with the exception of Brunei. Admittedly, our presence in the majority of those countries is tiny, and there are few active chapters, yet I think this could potentially be a galvanizing issue.

    And plus, there's the Trans-Atlantic Free Trade Agreement, which is, as I'm sure you're aware, a similar beast. Taken together, that involves the majority of countries that IOPS members...

    I think I should probably write this up as a larger blog post.

    You really should Timothy, including the push by Big Global Energy to open Europe up to shale gas drilling. Especially in the Ukraine. Coincidence? Don't think so.

    Great gathering in NYC, congrats.
