The most danceable fracking explainer you’ll see today:

My Water's On Fire Tonight (The Fracking Song) " is "Why Does The Sun Shine? " for fracking. ("Your groundwater is a mass of incandescent gas ...") It explains enough about hydraulic fracturing -- what it's for, how it works, where it can go wrong, why your sink just went up in flames -- for you to get through a reasonably intensive cocktail party conversation, or understand most news articles on the subject if you're the type of person who never gets invited to cocktail parties and instead just sits home reading the Times . (It was made by journalism students, so you have to figure that the latter type is their target audience.) Plus, you can dance to it! Does Mark Ruffalo have one of those movie star vanity bands like Keanu Reeves and Russell Crowe? They should totally cover this.
