  1. Anyone who has followed this story will see that Dr Howarth has lost his credibility with his colleges at Cornell U and other universities who have questioned his science. The anti-shale gas crowd sees that the water contamination issue is not gaining traction with the public, so now the switch to a methane “belch” from shale gas exploration. Since cows release about 100-150 gallons of methane a day thru belching and flatulence, should we ban cattle in Texas?
