Frackademia: How the Fracking Industry Tries To Bully Or Buy Scientists

It starts off with this:
Range Resources, a Texas company, bullied the federal government into dropping a scientific report on environmental contamination caused by fracking, a new investigation by the Associated Press has just revealed. This comes on the heels of two major pro-fracking academic reports that had to be withdrawn in 2012.
And ends with this:
Back in Texas, Lipsky is still fighting a huge legal battle with Range Resources. He is also spending $1,000 a month to pump clean water to his house. “This has been total hell,” Lipsky told the Associated Press. “It’s been taking a huge toll on my family and on our life.”
I raised two boys, was a scout leader and taught school. I’ve always had a policy of zero tolerance for bullies.
