Possibly alarmist explanation of hydraulic fracturing risks. It shows how hydraulic fracturing works while focusing more on the flaws (“what they don’t say”) in the process.

For example – fracking fluid is pumped underground to induce fractures. Some of the fracking fluid is retrieved, and the retrieved fluid is stored in lined pits which may leak into groundwater. That much is true, but I’m curious if the leakage is as bad as the video implies.
