It's been said that Backing Fracking is just an industry front or 'astroturf' group (a fake grassroots movement) set up by PR company, is that true?
No, not even remotely! This accusation surfaces from time-to-time among fracking opponents and is nothing more than an attempt at discrediting us so we can't gain new supporters and to try and get the media to ignore us. Fortunately, it doesn't work and not only does our supporter base keep growing, we've regularly had our comments featured in national and local newspapers and on TV and radio.
