I can't substantiate what I say at this moment but I have seen water coming out of domestic taps that was being set alight ---- in America

meanwhile http://www.foe-scotland.org.uk/fracking

I'll try and find a link to the documentary or something similar

Yes I remember now,and if my old brain serves me well,there was some concern from locals regarding,the safety of Fracking,as to wether it could cause quakes,...i think i,d be more concerned about all  underground testing of the Atom bombs,that went on ,than i would about looking for shale gas,
