Water, Water - Who's Got Water?

Almost every conversation about fracking for natural gas gets into an argument about the science of the well drilling operation.  My heart always goes to the water.  I don't care how safely you drill a well - the technology of high volume hydraulic fracturing demands destroying millions upon millions of gallons of fresh, life-giving water.

This article breaks my heart.  Let us not become immune to such stories about the lack of water supplies!
