Energy in Depth has already responded to the study's claims on behalf of the industry. In part:
FACT V: Acknowledges technical advice from anti-fracking activist.
The report’s acknowledgements section includes a shout out to Ms. Theo Colborn, the author of her own debunked study on hydraulic fracturing and air quality. Ms. Colborn provided “technical advice” and “comments on the manuscript,” according to the study.
Just as a refresher: Ms. Colborn runs the Endocrine Disruption Exchange (TEDX), which claims the industry is “steamrolling over vast land segments in the West,” and has referred to oil and gas operations as “cancer-like.”
Ms. Colborn is also the one who admitted that a goal of anti-fracking activism needs to be working with the press to get the most destructive narrative about hydraulic fracturing into the headlines. Speaking at an anti-industry activist event recently, Colborn stated:
“Somehow, some way, we need to get drilling and all the other sources of the pollution into the headlines, along with fracking. We’ve got to work on the media on this.”
