Fracking 101

The above video (cleanly and interestingly animated) explains the dirty, dangerous process of fracking and why natural gas should just be left in the ground.

Edward James Olmos narrates with his usual quiet authority, and though he doesn’t say so, I’m sure he’d agree with me that we all need to tell the frackers of the world to get the frack out.


Jason M. Vaughn earned a degree in Painting from KU, back in a majestic time called “the nineties.” In response to certain life events, he then drifted away from visual art—something he’d practiced since toddlerhood—and found himself addicted to books. Writing naturally followed. He’s published numerous poems and short stories, and his first feature-length screenplay,The Synth House Wife, won the 2012 Script Pipeline Competition. He is working now on a science-fiction book called Cerulean, which will hopefully CHANGE THE WORLD AS WE KNOW IT…or at least be a good read.
