‘Fracking’ Continues to Contaminate Drinking Water

Remember Gasland? The documentary about natural gas drilling that premiered on HBO this summer had memorable footage of a man lighting his tap water on fire. Fracking, as hydraulic fracturing is known, is continuing to contaminate drinking water with methane gas, making the water undrinkable.
