If you enjoy "real" reality TV check out Gasland the documentary I think it is on HBO and Netflix now. I saw the trailer and at the end the guy lighting the water coming out of his faucet sold me, I had to find it and watch. What a sad, fascinating, horrifying and educational experience it was.

Until I saw it I would have sworn you could not get a fireball from the faucet, in fact many do! The enormous use of water used in fracking blew me away also. Makes me think on site methane production might be worth looking into at some point.

That's a heck of a flim Jeff.  Pretty hard to argue when people are igniting tap water.
"Tapped" and "Flow for the Love of Water" are a couple other good related documentaries.

Methane is a problematic green house gas, but I don't think "dirtier" is the right word to describe it. I also have a totally unconfirmed suspicion that a ton of methane released will be similar to a ton of CO2 on a thousand year time scale because methane isn't as thermodynamically stable as CO2. but natural gas is where we are going next so I doubt that there is anything we can do to stop fraking from happening,

love how they pull that 1000 times dirtier headline outa the figures that make the total pollution just a bit higher that previously known
 
Yes, my master! Here is the tiny ad you asked for:
