Sex, science, and stem cells : inside the right wing assault on reason by Diana DeGette ( Book )
2 editions published between 2008 and 2009 in English and held by 435 WorldCat member libraries worldwide
From the Publisher: Congresswoman Diana DeGette, a top congresswoman's stinging rebuke of those who politicize science and sex. "Over time, I realized that the politicization of science by the Republicans and the religious right was at its most insidious over any issue relating to human reproduction. This brought me to the inevitable conclusion that too many of our elected officials are simply incapable of thinking rationally about sex. I could think of no other explanation. The disconnect was so transparent that some of our older male politicians couldn't even talk about any aspect of human sexuality without biting their lips to avoid snickering like schoolboys."

Chemicals used in hydraulic fracturing by United States ( Book )
1 edition published in 2011 in English and held by 1 WorldCat member library worldwide
Hydraulic fracturing (also known as "fracking" or "hydrofracking") has helped to expand natural gas production in the United States, unlocking large natural gas supplies in shale and other unconventional formations across the country. As a result of hydraulic fracturing and advances in horizontal drilling technology, natural gas production in 2010 reached the highest level in decades. According to new estimates by the Energy Information Administration (EIA), the United States possesses natural gas resources sufficient to supply the United States for approximately 110 years. As the use of hydraulic fracturing has grown, so have concerns about its environmental and public health impacts. One concern is that hydraulic fracturing fluids used to fracture rock formations contain numerous chemicals that could harm human health and the environment, especially if they enter drinking water supplies. The opposition of many oil and gas companies to public disclosure of the chemicals they use has compounded this concern. Last Congress, the Committee on Energy and Commerce launched an investigation to examine the practice of hydraulic fracturing in the United States. As part of that inquiry, the Committee asked the 14 leading oil and gas service companies to disclose the types and volumes of the hydraulic fracturing products they used in their fluids between 2005 and 2009 and the chemical contents of those products. This report summarizes the information provided to the Committee
