- Fossil fuel frackers Baker Hughes teamed up with charity Susan G. Komen to “end breast cancer forever“. How? By painting 1,000 of their drill heads pink and donating $100,000 to the charity. Strangely there is no mention in their press release of the high risk of cancer to oil and gas workers from the benzine that is part of their drilling operations and has been linked to leukaemia and, erm, breast cancer. Still, why let little things like that stand in the way of some good old fashioned PR.
