That is the speculation of one person, who has been known to be a bit of a conspiracy nut. I have a theory that has absolutely no evidence to support it but the fact that our profession and the geoscientist profession overlap in the industry I think is behind it. The reason I would like to stop speculation is that groups like TLTA, TSPE, and such can assist us under the domino theory, but if we are lashing out without evidence, we might burn bridges we need. Someone earlier in the thread asked if TSPS had a message board and the answer is no, we took down the one we had due to the fact that it was not being used by anyone except one person. We have started a blog though that accepts comments and I have a post on it now asking for guidance about what info the members want. it is accessible from the front page of the tsps website but is available to members only. That is so we can have discussions without having everything strewn around the net for everyone to peruse.
Here is some more news on this subject. The "nut" Mr. Redmon is speaking about is none other than....myself. Mr. Redmon is guilty of ignorance as to the intent of Title 22 Part 29 of the Texas Administrative Code. It is unfortunate that individuals of his character have been allowed to assume authority at TSPS and indicates one of the reasons why this profession in Texas has reached such a low point. I have been a member of TSPS for 20 years and have contributed vast amounts of my time, money and energy promoting our profession. It is truly sad how this profession is being destroyed by individuals like Mr. Redmond.
