So Simple A Child Can Understand

"Things always find a way to happen ... A pen leaking. Your shoelace coming untied. Toxic chemicals in your drinking water. What?!"

This short animation is a great addition to the more lengthy and serious videos, explaining why the process of hydro-fracking is highly toxic and dangerous.

Retro hip, sharp and funny - it hits the nail on the head when it come to getting across the basic message.

"Oil and gas companies drill into the ground. They take good water, mix it up with not so good stuff and shoot it into the wells to force out the gas. By 2010 they'll be drilling 32,000 wells a year."

So simple a child can understand. Let's spread the message so enough grown-ups do too!
