Gas Fracking Will Turn Your Tap Water on Fire

Does gas fracking cause contamination of drinking water.  Yes, according to a new study published in the Proceedings of the National Academy of Sciences.  The process causes mainly methane gas to seep into drinking water supplies.  What the study can’t say is how widespread the water contamination already is country-wide.

The good news with gas fracking is that you’ll never need your stove to heat your tea.  Just set your tap water on fire.

The bad news is that you can’t drink the tea.
