What actually is fracking?

  • Relatively new gas and oil extraction technique.
  • Involves pumping of water and chemicals into shale rock at high pressure, which shatters the rock and releases the oil and gas that's trapped inside.
  • Despite the fact that fracking results in water pollution, the US has embraced it wholeheartedly, turning it into the the world's biggest producer of natural gas.
