“Hydraulic fracturing is the process of drilling for natural gas and oil underneath
the ground. Water mixed with other components is pumped into the ground
to create cracks (also referred to as fissures or fractures) to release the gas into
wells that have been built for collection.” -What-is-fracking.com
From National Geographic:
SHALE PLAYS IN YOUR COMMUNITY
“The advent of large-scale shale gas production did not occur until around 2000 when shale gas
production became a commercial reality in the Barnett Shale located in north-central Texas.
As commercial success of the Barnett Shale became apparent, other companies started drilling
wells in this formation so that by 2005, the Barnett Shale alone was producing almost half a
trillion cubic feet per year of natural gas. As natural gas producers gained confidence in
their ability to profitably produce natural gas in the Barnett Shale and confirmation of this
ability was provided by the results in the Fayetteville Shale in northern Arkansas, they began
pursuing the development of other shale formations…” -EIA.gov

Ever wondered what life's like in a remote tribal community? What tribal people have to say about the world? Tribal Voice, a project by Survival International, brings the thoughts and experiences of some of the most diverse societies on earth direct to your screen in real time. We're kicking off the project with tribes in Brazil. The Guarani, whose land has been stolen and destroyed by plantations and ranches, are now sending regular updates about their lives, and their struggle to survive. It's time to listen.
