They’re Singing ‘The Fracking Song’ All Over the World

Not long ago, fracking—short for “hydraulic fracturing”—was an obscure method of extracting oil and natural gas. Then the videos started showing up of people lighting their tap water on fire, and 60 Minutes aired a segment on fracking. As demonstrated by this interactive map (connected to an Al Jazeera report on the fracking-earthquakes connection), fracking is becoming a truly global issue, with controversy over the process arising not just in the United States and Canada but also in the United Kingdom, Poland, Bulgaria and South Africa.

In case you missed it, here’s “My Water’s On Fire Tonight (The Fracking Song),” which was picked as the second-most creative video of 2011 by Time magazine.
