Fracking / Coal Seam Gas Industry

BY EARTHFIRST

Given that it's been getting quite a bit of attention in the media over the last week, I thought it would be wise to post this simple animation which I came across some time ago,  that explains what Fracking otherwise knows as Coal seam Gas Mining is all about. Just in case any of our readers don't fully understand what its all about.. I also highly recommend that you watch the documentary 'Gasland'.

 

 

And if you missed it, the recent Four Corners feature which brings it closer to home (if you are in Australia).  Water that you can set on fire and rivers filled with methane are apparently not enough evidence to prove that it is harmful for everyone involved. Yet somehow the billion dollar coal seam gas industry claims that it's a cleaner energy and perfectly safe.  What the #%^&!! 

What do you think?
