Of course I expected them to ignore the impact of the extracted gas on climate change but I would have thought they would have picked on the scandal that the report was co-authored by the UK's leading fracker. This if from Frack Off:
The report on fracking released today by the Royal Academy of
Engineering (RAE) & the Royal Society omits a key consideration: the
RAE’s ex-President is Lord Browne, Chairman of Cuadrilla, the UK’s leading fracker. Lord Browne was head of the RAE – co-author of the report – until last year. Browne owns 30% of Cuadrilla and works inside government as a non-executive director to the Cabinet Office.
