Water has been back in the news lately. A team of wolf-pack researchers at Duke, Stanford and Ohio State released a report saying that well bore integrity is a likely cause of surface methane escaping into water supplies. Now…Scott Pelley at 60-Minutes did a report in 2012 on Duke’s medical research department claiming to have discovered a new cure for cancer, saying it – quote “may end up being one of the biggest medical research frauds ever” due to Duke’s alleged gross misrepresentation of facts.
Duke and Stanford have teamed up on more than one occasion to release biased anti-fracking water reports. The fact remains: The process of extracting oil and gas from beneath our feet is safe. It’s been safe for 150 years, and nothing has changed now.
