You may or may not share my absolute confidence that every possibly accessible bit of fossil fuel will be used up eventually because the global market will demand it.  You may or may not share my belief that the huge human population of the planet is unsustainable under any circumstances. 

 

     But you may share my astonishment at the elegance with which this promotional video makes hydrofracturing for shale gas look more wholesome than breast feeding a baby.

      Please share your comments on the ways that the video puts a positive spin on dubious aspects of the fracking process.  We call this putting lipstick on the pig.
