Let's face it: Humans are pretty messy. Industrial processes like mining and manufacturing are important parts of keeping civilization going, but they all impact the environment. Sometimes that impact is particularly big and messy, leaving behind hazardous waste that can take years or even decades to clean up.

The energy company, Uranium Energy Corporation, has been trying to launch a large-scale mining operation in Goliad, Texas, for quite a while. Because the mining activities could pollute the aquifer that supplies the city's drinking water, the EPA has been rejecting the company's request for an exemption from the federal Safe Drinking Water Act. Then, the company hired high-powered lobbyists Heather Podesta, a well-connected player in Washington who has been called, "the number one person you need to know in Obama's Washington." After she lobbied on behalf of Uranium Energy, the EPA relented, and Uranium Energy is now allowed to mine the Goliad aquifer. The Resident (aka Lori Harfenist) discusses the story.

An investigation has begun to shed light on the hazards of hydraulic fracturing - or fracking - across the country. In at least four of the states that have nurtured the nation's energy boom, hundreds of complaints have been made about well-water contamination from oil or gas drilling. Pollution was confirmed in a number of those states, according to an Associated Press review that casts doubt on industry suggestions that such problems rarely happen. RT's Meghan Lopez learns more about water pollution from fracking from Tyson Slocum, director of the Public Citizen Energy Program.

Having your own energy sources is an important weapon in the world economy. Since 2013, the United States has made important foes of fossil-rich opponents like Saudi Arabia important in extracting shale gas and shale oil from its own soil. The price for a barrel of crude oil fell from 100 to less than $50. The Texan shale producers who survived this price tag are the new heroes of the United States. Under president Donald Trump, the shale cowboys are striving to help Europe to become independent. On research in Trumpland. Original title: Schaliecowboys Schale stone was considered worthless by the oil and gas industry in the past. They passed through on their way to expensive oil and gas that lay deeper. Until a small Texan gas company found a way in the late 1990's to win gas from hard-shelled rock. By making deep boreholes in the stone layers of the soil and injecting a large amount of water and chemicals under high pressure, shale gas and shale oil are won. With this method, later known as fracking, the energy market changed forever. In the meantime, one third of gas and oil production in the United States is a shale.And the bid consumer of energy is not only content to be independent, the country is now even an exporter of energy. OPEC, the organization of (other) oil exporting countries, keeps the oil price on the world market as low as possible, to make American production worthless. But for the moment, the oil countries do not get the shale cowboys on their knees. How does this controversial innovation put the world of energy upside down? Because this new offer of cheap energy really gives us more time to bridge the transition to a sustainable world of solar and wind energy. A few years ago, all experts and analysts went out of the Peak Oil Theory. Namely, the fossil reserves in the world were running out. The shale revolution turned this theory into old dirt in just a few years. Fracking technology opens a whole new reservoir of fossil fuels. The election of President Trump was greeted in Texas with joy and also seen as a recognition for what the shale revolution is going to be. And the future is even more rosy: recent geological research showed that hundreds of billions of dollars of shale oil are still in the so-called Wolf Camp Shale Field in West Texas. Who are the people behind this shale revolution? A portrait of the pioneers and the new Shale millionaires in Texas. Daniel Yergin (energy specialist and author of The Prize and The Quest), Dan Steward, Kent Bowker and Nick Steinsberger (Shale Gas Revolution Geologists and Pioneers), Matt Miller (Dallas Gray Gray Energy Partners), Doug Shanda (Head of Operations Cheniere Energy in Port Arthur), Tommy Taylor (Director of Fasken Oil & Ranch from Midland Texas).

Fracking explained in five minutes. Fracking is a controversial topic. On the one side the gas drilling companies, on the other citizen opposed to this drilling method. Politicians are also divided on the matter. We try to take a neutral look on fracking. It is relevant for all of us, because of high prices for energy and the danger for our drinking water. This video focuses mostly on the debate currently ongoing in europe. In a lot of european countries there is a public outcry against fracking, espacially in germany. But the facts in this video are relevant to all of us. Short videos, explaining things. For example Evolution, the Universe, Stock Market or controversial topics like Fracking.

Nigeria may sit atop one of the largest oil reserves in the world, but the majority of the Nigerian people have seen little benefit from the multibillion-dollar industry. The government and global energy companies have been exploiting the resource for years, bringing poverty, pollution, and violence to the Niger Delta. And now the local militias fighting for oil control have made conditions even worse. Caught in the conflict are Nigerian citizens involved in the illegal oil market simply for survival. Oil theft is rampant, and the booming black market has transnational oil and gas consultants concerned about the effects on global oil markets. The government isn't too happy about it either. “All the oil that is sold around here, the government calls illegally refined products,” local oil businessman Don Wizaro told VICE News. And when the Nigerian military raids illegal oil operations, they slash containers, releasing oil into waterways, contaminating what the main source of fishing, agriculture, and drinking water. As the government continues its assault on illegal refineries and barges carrying stolen oil, local militias are retaliating. And one of the most notorious militias is the Niger Delta Avengers. They attack pipelines and infrastructure, significantly affecting both the environment and the economy. VICE correspondent Gianna Toboni heads to the heart of Nigeria's oil production to witness firsthand the fight over the control of oil in the Niger Delta.

But with questions remaining about damage to the environment and people's health, fracking is causing a major rift across affected communities. "It's the answer to our local economy, our national economy, our state economy and it is the new foreign policy", says Doug McClinko, County Commissioner of Towanda, Pennsylvania. The area is rich in shale gas and to many like Doug, fracking is the key to a more self-reliant and secure future. In an area where rural livelihoods are under intense strain, the personal incentives for opening the door to fracking is clear: "It puts kids into college". But as global oil prices plummet, ripping profits from under landowners' feet, and more and more residents report severe water contamination, questions are coming to the fore and dividing communities. For Ray Kemble, a notable anti-fracking activist whose water began running green after the wells popped up, the benefits are nowhere to be seen. "They've destroyed my life", he says.

A pipeline network more than 2.5 million miles long transports oil and natural gas throughout the United States — but a top official in the federal government's pipeline safety oversight agency admits that the regulatory process is overstretched and "kind of dying." A recent spike in the number of spills illustrates the problem: the Department of Transportation recorded 73 pipeline-related accidents in 2014, an 87 percent increase over 2009. Despite calls for stricter regulations over the last few years, the rules governing the infrastructure have largely remained the same. Critics say that this is because of the oil industry's cozy relationship with regulators, and argue that violations for penalties are too low to compel compliance. VICE News traveled to Glendive, Montana, to visit the site of a pipeline spill that dumped more than 50,000 gallons of oil into the Yellowstone River, to find out why the industry has such weak regulatory oversight.

Critics of the process argue that it contaminates groundwater and damages the environment and public health. A grassroots resistance movement has emerged to fight the introduction of fracking in the UK, and it appears to be gaining momentum throughout the country.

For nearly four months, the Aliso Canyon methane leak just north of Los Angeles spewed several thousand metric tons of potent greenhouse gases into the air before it was finally sealed in February. The disaster displaced residents, forced schools to close, and incited widespread distrust in the local government's regulation of the oil and gas industry. Few people realize that Los Angeles was actually built on oil. The Aliso Canyon natural gas facility is just one of thousands of oil and gas drilling and storage sites located in and around the city, which is also home to the country's largest urban oil field. Thousands of wells dot the cityscape, and many operate in highly populated, low-income neighborhoods.

Here, Editors Mary Gannon and Paul Heney talk about how these sensors are used to provide real-time, in-line sensing and monitoring of lubricating fluids. The Trident QW3100 can be used with any fluid-lubricated equipment, such as engines and gearboxes used in mining or wind turbines, among many other harsh industrial environments. Here, users can optimize oil drain and sampling intervals, improve asset health state awareness and identify contamination events. It provides continuous insight into oil health, promoting condition-based maintenance practices such as optimized fluid drain intervals and reduced dependence on offline analysis. This, in turn, extends oil life.

005 - Water Resources In this video Paul Andersen explains how water is unequally distributed around the globe through the hydrologic cycles. Seawater is everywhere but is not useful without costly desalination. Freshwater is divided between surface water and groundwater but must me stored and moved for domestic, industrial, and agricultural uses. Subsidized low cost water has created a problem with water conservation but economic changes could help solve the problem. Do you speak another language?

A video by Scott Cannon DEP consent order proving methane migration: http://imgur.com/OWUXAYN http://www.youtube.com/playlist?list=PL062539BFB8A2B2D4&feature=view_all Please read this before saying methane migration doesn't exist. It's a proven fact: http://thetimes-tribune.com/news/sunday-times-review-of-dep-drilling-records-reveals-water-damage-murky-testing-methods-1.1491547 The Promised Land in real life. Matt Damon John Krasinski People can light their taps on fire because of gas drilling. This is one of those cases. In fact, one of the companies that produced Truthland, Chesapeake Energy, was responsible for this mess. A snippet from the Marcellus Shale Reality Tour video Sherry Vargson gave the group a tour of her farm in Granville Township, where Chesapeake Energy has drilled one well and installed compressor and metering stations and a gathering pipeline. She said her water became contaminated with methane after maintenance activities at the site in June 2010, and lit water from her tap alight for a trip attendees and the media. The little bus wound its way over green mountains, alongside undeveloped stretches of the meandering Susquehanna River and through some of Pennsylvania's most pristine wilderness. The man inside with the microphone, the Gas Drilling Awareness Coalition's Scott Cannon, said there's trouble in paradise as he pointed out the changes Marcellus Shale natural gas drilling has brought to Pennsylvania's Northern Tier. Here was a drilling rig, there a water withdrawal site and every so often yet another pipeline was laid out in preparation for burial. The sights were part of the coalition's "Marcellus Shale Reality Tour," held Sunday for area legislators, municipal representatives and candidates for political office. "We still have to deal with pipelines, compressor stations; they wanted to put a frack water treatment facility in Hanover Township -- that was an hour away from the nearest drill site," Cannon said. About 15 people attended the tour, including candidate for U.S. representative Bill Vinsko, Wilkes-Barre Administrative Coordinator Drew McLaughlin and Luzerne County Council candidates Kathleen Dobash, Salvatore Licata, Eileen Sorokas and Michelle Bednar. "It's all about information," Sorokas said. "You can't beat going firsthand and seeing it. I've heard so many things about it; I want to clarify it in my mind." "It's important to learn about all sides of this important issue," said Vinsko, a Democrat who plans to a 2012 challenge to Republican Lou Barletta in Pennsylvania's 11th Congressional District. "In order to make informed decisions, I wanted to hear from the landowners on both sides of the issue. I also plan to meet with the gas companies to get all sides of the story, but this is an important first step." At least one trip participant had already made up his mind about the issue. Throop Borough Council President Tommy Lukasewicz said he has been fighting against the efforts of Keystone Sanitary Landfill to increase its daily intake by 2,500 tons, which would allow it to accept more solid waste from the gas drilling industry. "I agree more than anyone here probably that this is the worst thing that could happen to Northeastern Pennsylvania," he said, adding that he believes gas drilling could reverse the progress the area has made in erasing the scars left 50 years ago by coal mining. Lukasewicz, who attended Mansfield University and often drove through Bradford County to get there, said he "wanted to see firsthand what an area (he) had known about looks like now."

Canada is the fifth-largest producer of oil in the world. But when the price of oil plummeted in late 2014, the country’s oil-rich western province of Alberta began hurtling toward a recession, with widespread layoffs and historic reductions in drilling activity. The impact was felt across Canada, too. Crude oil is the country’s number one export, and 99 percent of it is sold to the United States. But in recent years, the US has emerged as a major oil producer in its own right, following a revolution in controversial fracking technology that has increased US oil production and contributed to a global oversupply of oil. Now, Canada's energy sector faces the difficult question of how to meet new markets in a changing global energy landscape. VICE News visited Alberta, known as Canada’s “Texas of the North," in what is normally high season for drilling — just before the frozen ground thaws — to explore how the bitter sting of low oil prices is affecting the region’s the economy.

A RIVER ON FIRE! Gas explodes from Australian river near fracking site. I was shocked by force of the explosion when I tested whether gas boiling through the Condamine River, Qld was flammable. So much gas is bubbling through the river that it held a huge flame. There has been concern that fracking and extraction of coal seam gas could cause gas to migrate through the rock. Not only is it polluting the river and air, but methane is an extremely potent heat trapping gas. Fugitive emissions from the unconventional gas industry could be a major contributor to climate change and make gas as dirty as burning coal. Gas first started bubbling though the river shortly after the coal seam gas industry took off in the Chinchilla area. Since then the volume of gas bubbling through the river has massively increased and has spread along the river. You can see stakes in the river bank were the Queensland Government has marked each gas seep. You can also see pipework near the river where Origin Energy has installed for monitoring the gas bubbling through the river. Thanks to John Jenkyn for taking me up the river in his tinnie. He's a champion!

http://www.democracynow.org - The Freedom Industries site behind the West Virginia chemical spill is just a mile upriver from the state's largest water treatment plant, owned by American Water. But despite the obvious dangers to the source of 16 percent of West Virginia resident's water supply, the spill has exposed major holes in how the state regulates the dangerous chemicals used coal mining and processing, its leading industry. The chemical, 4-methylcyclohexanemethanol (Crude MCHM), does not receive close federal or state oversight. Environmental inspectors have not visited the Freedom Industries facility since 1991. Under West Virginia law, chemicals storage facilities are not even subject to inspections. The plant also had no groundwater protection plan in place. We speak with Mike Elk, a labor reporter for In These Times Magazine who has extensively covered chemical regulation in the United States, including at the West, Texas, fertilizer plant where 15 people died in an explosion last year. And we're joined from West Virginia by Erin Brockovich, the renowned environmentalist and consumer advocate.

Reading Links, Sites and Papers - Irish Fluoride Awareness Site: @ - http://www.nofluoride.com/ American Fluoride Awareness Site: @ - http://www.fluoridealert.org/ Research Paper: "EFFECT OF FLUORIDE IN DRINKING WATER ON CHILDREN'S INTELLIGENCE" - @ - http://fluoride-class-action.com/wp-content/uploads/Appendix-16-Xiang-IQ-F-serum-FJ2003_v36_n2_p84-94.pdf Research Results: An IQ study of children in communities with 2.38 ppm fluoride in their water vs. those with 0.41 ppm fluoride. @ - http://www.fluoridealert.org/iq-studies.aspx SOME FLUORIDE INFORMATION: Fluoride is seen as a medication and is in no way a water treatment protocol. Adding it to our water supply is a medication of the general populace without their consent which is in itself against the law. No drug fits all case scenarios. All people are different sizes, physiologies and ages, and drink widely differing amounts of water. The difference between a labourer or a diabetic and a office worker, or a baby for instance. Professionally speaking, the whole idea of pharmacology is to deliver the right dosage of a particular drug to the right person at the right time. not to mention the serious case of medical ethics involved regarding informed consent. There are many toxicologists, pharmacologists and dental professionals who speak about the ill-effects of fluoride. It'd be fine if people were treated on an individual basis with their full knowledge and consent, and where a health professional could monitor the situation for side effects and for efficacy. But that is not what is happening here. We don't put anything in the water supply to keep people's blood pressure down or to prevent strokes or any other disease and there's no reason why we should be allowing some 'experts' do this to us either. Is there a bodily requirement for fluoride? No. It's a toxic substance and has no nutritional aspect to it whatsoever. Fluoride is not to be swallowed. It's a highly toxic substance. Whatever the health benefits, it is by way of topical (external) application opposed to swallowing. As an example, if you want to prevent sunburn you don't go ahead and drink sun tan lotion do you? You put it on your skin. No one really complains about toothpaste being used to treat teeth seeing that it's consentual. Also we are warned not to swallow it. Though serious care needs to be taken, toothpaste is a much smarter way to go about tooth fluoridation. Fluoride is readily available via toothpaste which further compounds the ridiculousness of it being added to our water supplies. In short, there's no way to justify the adding of fluoride to the public water supply as a means to topically apply it to teeth. It just makes no sense to do so. Are you aware of how many countries don't fluoridate their water ? Most European countries won't fluoridate their water. We are definitely in the minority. Some of the countries who do not fluoridate their water as follows: Austria - China - The Netherlands - Belgium - Hungary - Switzerland - Luxembourg - Sweden - Norway - Finland - Japan - France - Czech Republic - India - Germany - Iceland - Denmark - Italy - Greece - Portugal etc.. And guess what ? Their teeth are just as good as ours and better. All, other than India, don't suffer fluorosis of the teeth known to be caused by fluoride ingestion. India has relatively high amounts of fluoride naturally occurring in their environment and are more than aware of it's ill-effects to people's teeth. Is there less tooth decay in fluoridated countries ? Trends in tooth decay over time and in various countries would most certainly indicate not. If you look at the world health organisation data base say for twelve year olds over the decades, tooth decay rates have been coming down just as rapidly in non fluoridated countries as in fluoridated ones. The decline rates are indistinguishable from one area to the next and it is more likely due to better tooth care all round than the medication of water supplies. How much fluoride are we ingesting ? Well the sources of fluoride are ever increasing. Water and toothpaste obviously, Tea, many fruits via pesticides, anti-depressants, Cola and practically all beverages. Dental fluorosis (brown and white pitted marks on the teeth) is a bio marker that your child has been exposed to too much fluoride during the development of their teeth. Fluoride is not just a dental concern, it's a toxicity concern. Historically dentists have has carte blance on the assessing of fluorides effects upon the body. It effects other parts of the body. Arthritis - Other bone diseases - Brain - Cancer - Dental Fluorosis - Gastrointestinal effects - Infant Exposure - Immune System - Kidney - Pineal Gland - Reproductive system - Thyroid Gland... And not to mention any other organs that come in contact with it.

A tiny minority of America’s industrial sites released more greenhouse gases than all the passenger cars in the country combined and a third of all chemicals that companies reported pumping into the air in 2014, according to a nine-month investigation by the Center for Public Integrity. More of the people who live within three miles of these polluters are poor or African-American than the country as a whole, according to data from the U.S. Census Bureau. In Indiana, where pro-coal Gov. Mike Pence once called climate change a “myth”, industrial greenhouse-gas emissions are second only to Texas domestically, and exceed those from Israel, Greece and 185 other countries. Pence is the running mate of Republican presidential candidate Donald Trump.

I can't say fruitlessly because it bore a lot of fruit there, but she worked tirelessly to shrink the size of national monuments and national parks here in the United States, so that they could be opened up for fossil fuel exploitation by companies like BP, who she now works for in the government affairs office. So, she spent her time in government giving every single thing possible to the fossil fuel industry, opening up our beautiful national parks, shrinking the size of them down so that all those outer layers could be exploited by the fossil fuel industry, so they can extract the coal, the oil, the natural gas, whatever's down there, they're going to get it now. Now she's being reward with a very high paying job at BP, where she's going to be working in the government affairs office directly dealing with the people in the federal government that she was just working side by side with. This is one of the biggest problems of the US federal government today, and is not just something that we see only under Republicans. It happened under Democrats in the Obama administration, it happened under W. Bush, it happened under Clinton. This kind of revolving door, whether it's with the Department of the Interior and the oil companies, or if it's the FDA and the drug companies, or the EPA and the chemical industry, it happens all the time. That is why it has been decades in this country since we have seen any meaningful change come out of any of those government agencies. Nothing from the FDA, or EPA, or OSHA, or the interior department, nothing. It's because of that revolving door. Either the people currently serving in there have come from industry, or they're hoping to get a good industry job when they leave office so they've got to do everything possible to make sure their potential future employer can make as much money as possible, then when they go in and apply for the job they can put that on their resume and say, "Do you see what I did here? This was for you. Now, shouldn't I have a high paying job?" That's not how the government should work, it's not how it's supposed to work, but unfortunately that is 100% how it does work. People like Miss Magallanes now, she gets to go out and make probably hundreds of thousands of dollars in her new job that she's starting Tuesday, she's going to be lobbying the same people she used to work side by side with in the office next door or down the hallway, so she's going to be able to get all kinds of favor for the oil giants. But hey, in a situation like this, the only people who suffer are American taxpayers and those of us who don't want to see our air, land, and water polluted to hell and back. But people like Miss Magallanes and everybody else who's gone through that revolving door, they make out like bandits in situations like this.

https://store.der.org/crying-earth-rise-up-p1005.aspx Suree Towfighnia 57 min, 2015 Crying Earth Rise Up tells the story of Debra White Plume and Elisha Yellow Thunder’s parallel search for answers to the question: Why are there high levels of radiation in our drinking water and how can we protect our families and community against this threat? White Plume, a Lakota elder, views nearby uranium mining operations as one source of water contamination and as an encroachment on the water rights of the Lakota Nation. She takes action as the lead plaintiff in a case challenging uranium mining on tribal land, and as an organizer working to motivate her community to protect treaty territory from exploitation of their natural resources by corporate interests. Yellow Thunder seeks answers in the earth itself. During her pregnancy, she unknowingly drank contaminated water and her daughter, Laila, was born with severe medical anomalies. Laila and family await a kidney transplant. When Yellow Thunder can take time away from caring for Laila, she maps ore outcroppings on the Pine Ridge Reservation in search of uranium and the origins of the contamination. Meanwhile, community members from the mining town of Crawford, NE, Lakota health and environmental agencies, an organic rancher and project manager of a proposed uranium mine, lawyers involved in White Plume’s case, natural resources officials, a nuclear energy expert, farmers and ranchers, all grapple with the prospect of license renewal at the Crow Butte mine in Nebraska and the proposed expansion of mining operations to three additional mines in northwest Nebraska and western South Dakota. Observational footage, ruggedly beautiful Great Plains vistas, sit-down interviews, illustrations, and animated graphics combine to address the controversy surrounding the existing and proposed uranium mining operations over the High Plains/Ogallala aquifer. Native actress Tantoo Cardinal narrates the film, supporting its structure, ensuring clarity and acting as a reliable guide for the audience through the story. The film addresses the direct relationship between water and life itself, and the tragic irony that what is sacred may also be poisoning, even as nuclear power companies insist on the environmental safety of their industry’s practices and townspeople point to the mine’s essential role in fueling the local economy. Through characters who oppose and support the expansion of uranium mining over the High Plains/Ogallala aquifer (the largest fresh water underground source in North America), audiences engage with the important and timely issue of preserving and protecting the land and water. Native communities are commonly involved in debates about land use and environmental stewardship, particularly in the west, because of the historical exploitation of natural resources found on treaty land, Native religious beliefs that bind the people to nature, the Native philosophy of “seven generations” that mirrors the concept of sustainable ecological practices, etc. Crying Earth Rise Up acknowledges the centrality of Native involvement in opposing the particular practice of uranium mining and suggests Native communities’ wider spread contribution to a variety of other conversations related to environmental protection (although not always noted by mainstream media, e.g. the recent blocking of the TransCanada Keystone XL Pipeline).

For more info or to apply visit http://teea.org. Driving down FM39 southeast of Waco, the first thing you might notice in the distance are the massive drag lines and displaced earth indicative of surface coal mining operations; just as quickly though, it becomes apparent that much of the landscape exhibits a simple beauty of open rolling terrain with pockets of surface waters, free grazing land, and glimpses of wildlife. Inspired, a team of civil engineers, wildlife biologists, landscape architects, and executive management has diligently worked to integrate this beauty into everyday operations. By working with landowners to demonstrate the importance of native species—both vegetative and wildlife—and by dedicating operations to achieve that goal, the Texas Westmoreland Coal Company is establishing itself as an industry leader in innovative conservation. Meet our winner in the Innovative Operations/Management category: Texas Westmoreland Coal Company, Jewett.

George W. Bush appointed Petro-chemical Industry leaders that have gutted environmental regulations on refineries and chemical plants. The Clean Water Act of 1972 has been thrown out. Dolphins and fish are dying in unprecedented numbers. Texas is the nation's leader in 'toxic releases', 'chemical spills', 'ozone pollution' and 'carbon dioxide emissions'. This video demonstrates the problems from ongoing Clean Water violations and the present day release of hazardous waste into our water and air.

EOG Resources is building a huge sand mine in northwest Cooke County Texas. They propose to process up to 5 million gallons of water per day, which threatens the Trinity Aquifer. The silica being mined contains a known carcinogen. So, the air quality is also being threatened. As the Texas Commission on Environmental Quality considers an air quality permit for EOG, a public meeting was held in Muenster Texas on August 13, 2011. This video was one of the comments made during the public meeting. Governor Rick Perry appointed the TCEQ representatives.

A documentary about the dangers of fracking. In this fracking documentary I travel around England to find out the truth about fracking, otherwise known as hydraulic fracturing. I get to speak to local politicians and find out that fracking corporations such as INEOS and Cuadrilla are in the back pockets of the Conservative government and after speaking with fracking experts, bee keepers, politicians, and mining experts I find out the harsh reality of hydraulic fracturing and what dangers the natural gas industry poses to the environment, such as earthquakes, water contamination, toxic waste and pollution. If you want to know the truth about fracking, then this is the fracking documentary not to miss! Music: Jerusalem - Blake/ParryArr.
