Last month Duke researchers Stephen Osborn, Avner Vengosh, Rob Jackson, and Nathaniel Warner published a paper [pdf] on the possible contamination of drinking water wells in the vicinity of hydrofracking wells. (Here’s my post on the paper.)

It was a controversial paper that elicited a lot of comments and many claims — some valid, others not so much. The authors have now responded to many of the comments. You can check it out here.
