What the Frack?! Grab Your Cimate Change Kids and Watch

Love this video from from David Holmes and the Arthur L. Carter Journalism Institute at NYU – and so will the kids in your life! It is hard to imagine that a complicated subject like “Fracking” can be “fun.” But this video is fun, and helps us understand something that is happening around us, as our insatiable quest for energy has taken a wrong turn.

We need to care and demand safe practices, as the way that some companies are getting natural gas to us bypasses too many rules, and in many communities, this process is making people sick as local water supplies are becoming polluted. In the northeast, a huge gas find, called the Marcellus Shale, is making the California gold rush seems like a non event, as gas companies scramble to buy farm land to have access to this new “gold mine.”

Grab the kids, watch this video, and get informed!
