Follow The Fracking Money - Poem by Spock the Vegan

Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, is a technique
to recover gas and oil from shale rock.
Drilling is done down into the earth to get the peak
amount of gas released up to the well airlock.

Into the rock a high-pressure water mixture
is injected to release the gas on the insides.
Water, sand and chemicals are injected to make a fissure
in the rock at high pressure where the gas resides.

The price of gasoline in the U.S. is well below $2 a gallon.
Thank you fracking.
My energy investment has gone down more than 30%.
Thank you fracking.

January 13,2016: A large fracking operation fire
broke out in Grady county Oklahoma.
The fate of the trucks connected by metal pipes is dire.
January 14,2016: Government scientists admit they deceived
the public about fracking's impact on drinking water.
Find out who gave them money and how much they received.

Follow the money
