Pop and Pizza for Bobtown’s Fracking Pop

On 11 February this year an explosion occurred in Bobtown Pennsylvania in a shale formation where Chevron was fracking for natural gas. One work is missing presumed dead and the flames caused by the explosion burned for five days.

Chevron, mindful of its corporate and social responsibility to the people of Bobtown, population less than one thousand souls, decide that the best way to demonstrate its responsibility was to hand out about a hundred $12 coupons to the townsfolk, entitling them to a pizza and a free bottle of what Americans call soda and what the British call pop. This is a fine example to all those who claim that fracking operators have no corporate responsibility or that fracking operations are completely safe.
