Fracking Myths and Facts

There are many myths about fracking.

Some of them are put about by the oil and gas industry in order to ruthlessly maximise profits.  This is similar to the tobacco companies that used to tell us that smoking was safe, or Exxon Mobil denying that fossil fuels cause climate change, when it turned out they knew the harm they were causing all along.  In fact, it is even some of the same PR companies that are being paid to do this.  Some of these myths are repeated by politicians who should know better.
