We laid the foundations for analyzing the report “The Costs of Fracking” in Part I of this series. Now we’ll delve further into this 49-page paper from a group caught twice using fabricated imagery to stimulate a negative response against natural gas development.

This report is riddled with misleading information and assumptions. One of the most widely inappropriate parts of this study was the authors took information from across the country and tried to generically apply every situation to every state by releasing it under individual state organizations. This was problematic because it assumes regulations, geography, practices and other circumstances are the same across the board, when the reality is they can, and often do, vary greatly from state to state. We’ll focus on some of the bigger ones and invite you to read the whole report and cited studies within to determine for yourself what the risks and benefits associated with natural gas development are.
