Because your Friday could use a little bleakness, here’s the trailer for Water Defense’s “Natural Gas Exxposed” video series, showing the toll that fracking takes on communities.

Here’s the first video from the series, which shows a consequence of fracking that’s less explosive than flaming water but still devastating for actual families: Fracking ruins property values, so that people can’t even move away.

If you’re moved to action, but don’t actually want to go buy property in Pennsylvania, Water Defense has a petition you can sign.
