What the frack?
See this article on a former fracking shill. His job was to troll online groups defending fracking. He maintains that if done properly it is safe. But the fact is that fracking companies always look to ignore the laws and/or cut corners so that fracking is not safe. Another tactic was to paint opponents as anti-science. The fact is that most opponents use the actual science to defeat the argument. If all that failed the shills job was to paint opponents as crazy conspiracy theorists. Which of course is hard when they cite the science and the facts.
