The Water Canary by Sonaar Luthra
Static Preview

After a crisis, how can we tell if water is safe to drink? Current tests are slow and complex, and the delay can be deadly, as in the cholera outbreak after Haiti's earthquake in 2010. TED Fellow Sonaar Luthra previews his design for a simple tool that quickly tests water for safety -- the Water Canary.

TEDTalks is a daily video podcast of the best talks and performances from the TED Conference, where the world's leading thinkers and doers give the talk of their lives in 18 minutes.

We can end the water crisis in our lifetime. But first we have to let everyone know it's happening. Learn how water changes everything -- and share this with everyone you know. Visit our website here.

What is the Fracking Process by Chesapeak Energy
Static Preview

Instructional, how it is done...After being made available on YouTube it was re-classified as "private" by the company.

We are leaving a link to it on EarthSayers in the event the company changes its mind and makes it available once again.

In order to maximize the production potential for a natural gas well, the shale formation must be hydraulically fractured. This video outlines and demonstrates the hydraulic fracturing process in Chesapeake Energy natural gas operations. For more information on fracking, visit www.hydraulicfracturing.com.

Here is a news/personal story about spills from a Chesapeak Energy drilling site and contamination of private and public natural resources.

Here is our January 1, 2013 article on Fracking in our blog, Sustainability Adovate.

GasLand by Josh Fox
Static Preview

Trailer for GASLAND - (2010) Directed by Josh Fox. Winner of Special Jury Prize - Best US Documentary Feature - Sundance 2010. Screening at Cannes 2010. This addresses hydraulic fracturing a.k.a. fracking, a highly contentious, high risk energy alternative. 

A criticism of  Gasland is a video by the folks at ANGA - American Natural Gas Alliance - who argue that Gasland is "flawed." 

You are going to have to form your own opinion after listening to a wide range of voices of sustainability, but especially the citizens who are experience fracking first hand in their fields and communities.
