  1. Exploratory fracking is being mooted in at least seven sites around the UK - unfortunately. One caused earth tremors!

    But a report by our government's chief scientist stated: "Our main conclusions are that the environmental risks of hydraulic fracturing for shale can can be safely managed provided there is best practice observed and provided it's enforced through strong regulation," Huh!

    Huh again. Governments the world over will tell us absolutely anything to get their way. Also in the USA, concerns have been raised that the gas or chemicals can enter drinking water supplies - as the song suggests.

  2. Fracking is a problem here, there, everywhere. Earthquakes, contaminated water...

  3. Very fracking flight of the conchords!
