Frackademica Scandals

Frackademia refers to oil and gas companies funding research at major universities on hydraulic fracturing, as well as academics having financial interests in oil and gas companies, which critics say can blur the line between scientific research and PR. Such studies often report optimistic projections of shale gas reserves, economic benefits from shale production, and create doubt about the environmental hazards of fracking.
