Video: Meet The Frack Family

If you haven't met the Frack Family yet, check out this video!


SkyTruth Reports: Meet The Frack Family from SkyTruth on Vimeo.
Yolandita presents the imaginary Frack Family and their dog Rocky of Beaver County, PA who help us to visualize the staggering quantity of chemicals that were used in a typical frack job (hydraulic fracturing for natural gas extraction) near their imaginary house in the Marcellus Shale region of western Pennsylvania.

  2. Worth noting that a 4,700-gallon hydrochloric acid spill was just reported from a drill site in Leroy Township near Bradford, PA (https://stateimpact.npr.org/pennsylvania/2012/07/05/4700-gallons-of-acid-spill-at-bradford-county-drilling-site/). Some of the acid ran offsite and caused a fish kill in a tributary to Towanda Creek. This kind of spill is the reason we created the Frack Family visualization.
