EcoWatch Loves Cornell's Anti-Fracking Professor

From EcoWatch:
Ingraffea is perhaps best-known for his co-authorship of a Cornell University 2011 study that established the greenhouse gas footprint of fracking as being greater than that of any other fossil fuel including coal. The lead-investigator for Methane and the Greenhouse-Gas Footprint of Natural Gas from Shale Formations, often called “The Cornell Study,” was Robert Howarth, David R. Atkinson Professor of Ecology and Microbiology. A third co-author was research aide Renee Santoro.
Ingraffea has been a principal investigator on research and development projects ranging from the National Science Foundation, National Aeronautics and Space Administration (NASA) through Schlumberger, Gas Research Institute, Sandia National Laboratories, Association of Iron and Steel Engineers, General Dynamics, Boeing and Northrop Grumman Aerospace. Having been an industry insider for so long, he’s a formidable opponent of anyone who dares to go against him in a debate about high-volume hydraulic fracturing.

Obviously, anti-drilling activists would like for you to remember that potential bias on the part of researchers is only to be factored in if those researchers reach a conclusion that sheds positive light on fracking.  In the case of two professors who are opposed to fossil fuel and have positioned themselves as activists, you can be sure that their personal desire to see drilling stopped would never influence their research (which received funding from anti-drilling organizations).
