Worst fracking paper ever?

Bishop Hill in Energy: gas, Greens

Richard Black's Energy and Climate Change Information Unit has published what must surely rank as one of the most outrageously misleading contributions to the unconventional gas debate since Frackland.

The image explaining the unconventional drilling process is simply jaw-dropping, with readers invited to believe that aquifers are just a few feet below the surface and that shale seams are just a few feet below that.

I had previously thought that the BBC's equivalent diagram was pretty dishonest, but that did at least mention in a very small typeface that the details were not to scale.

Take a look at the rest of it too. Black has even raised the "flaming faucet" story again, if you can credit it. Simply astonishing that anyone could be so brazen.
