Here are a couple of links to a cautionary tale published last month by the New York Times: Piles of Dirty Secrets Behind a Model ‘Clean Coal’ Project. The interesting part of the Kemper Coal Files Timeline starts on February 27, 2014, with an email from Tom Stevens to Brett Wingo (though you may find earlier documents interesting as well).
Piles of Dirty Secrets is a fascinating account of a whistleblower standing up to a major corporation and doing everything in his power to make sure the project schedule is reasonable. How would you respond in a similar situation? We’d love to hear your thoughts.
