Komen is facing a backlash after it was announced that Baker Hughes was a partner. After making a $100,000 donation, Hughes will paint 1,000 drill bits “Passionately Pink” the color of the Komen Foundation. Bits that will be used for fracking for natural gas.
So Komen gets some money, Baker Hughes gets some publicity, what’s the problem? Well, fracking itself is under scrutiny itself for, among other things, possibly causing cancer.
