From The Independent (?) newspaper: -
'Women 'don't understand' fracking due to
lack of education
Many women are against fracking because they “don’t
understand” the process due to a lack of education in science, a leading expert
has claimed. Professor Averil Macdonald, chairwoman of industry body UK Onshore
Oil and Gas and emeritus professor of science engagement at Reading University,
told The Times newspaper that men tended to be more in favour of fracking than
women because they were persuaded by “an awful lot of facts”.
We note that Professor McDonald is 'Chair' of
UK Onshore Oil and Gas.
