Andrew Fulton

Andrew Fulton "– with no known academic credentials – suddenly pops up as a ‘professor’ of Law at Glasgow University and is sent as an ‘observer’ to Camp Zeist. When his cover was blown, it caused substantial embarrassment to both the University and to the Scottish legal authorities."[1]

Activities

Several Glasgow University academics have close links to the fracking industry. The university attempted to terminate Professor David Smythe's promised lifelong online research access in 2016 after he published an article critical of the shale gas industry.[2]
