LISTEN: Alberta Fracking

LISTEN:  Alberta Fracking CBC “As It Happens”, April 27, 2011
It’s known as “fracking” — the process of using water and other chemicals under extreme pressure to blast apart coal formations and release natural gas. And one woman in Southern Alberta says that in using that process, the natural gas producer Encana has flooded her drinking water with so much methane that she can set her tap water on fire.  Jessica Ernst announced today that she’s suing Encana, the Alberta Government and the provincial energy regulator for thirty-three million dollars. We reached Jessica Ernst in Calgary.
