Woman Near ‘Fracking’ Site Lights Tap Water On Fire

Hydraulic Fracturing, or ‘fracking‘, is a process in which pressurized liquids are used to cause channels (or cracks) in rocks underground, which allows petroleum (gases) to escape and be harvested.

The woman featured in this video lives in Pennsylvania, near a ‘fracking’ site.

According to Wikipedia, many people are against this method of harvesting petroleum because of

potential environmental impacts, including contamination of ground water, risks to air quality, the migration of gases and hydraulic fracturing chemicals to the surface, surface contamination from spills and flowback…

Some countries have banned the practice, but not the United States.  I have a friend who lives in northwest Texas, and ‘fracking’ takes place near his property, which does not sit too well with him.

‘Fracking’ has been going on since before I was even born, but the new method has only been around since 1997.

I haven’t heard of any fracking being done around ‘these parts’, but, then again, I wouldn’t know ‘fracking’ if they hit me over the head with it (I mean, I would know that it was something, but probably wouldn’t recognize it as ‘fracking’).

This lady claims that the ‘fracking’ going on around her house is causing methane gasses to seep into her well-water.  Sounds legit to me!  Watch her light her tap water afire!

Why did I take the time to write this story?  For two reasons, really:  1) to show you this video and, 2) I really like saying “fracking”.
