If taxpayers won’t pay for research and training, then the industry will. http://www.commondreams.org/view/2012/09/09-2

And that is exactly what the score is.

Wonder if the curriculum covers the failures of the fracking process - like polluted ground water and land and air and the blowouts and the fact that once the water table is polluted it can not be fixed the problem will continue.

Probably not.

Take it they are likely kept from making field trips?

I have no idea. I would think they have to go out and work for free at some point. If the industry is creating and providing the text books and the testing etc., I fail to see how that it would allow for independent thought processes.

You know if they went into the field that all smokers would likely be monitored very very closely.

If they have undisclosed ties to the industry, and then produce research, and then are caught with research that downplays risk while at the same time they are demonstrated as receiving - what was it? 1.5 million dollars in cash and stock?

why can't we just hang them?
