Video of the Week #14, October 26, 2011

From: The Fracking Song by Bora Zivkovic at A Blog Around The Clock.

Source of the original: The Explainer project by the NYU’s Studio 20 students.

What I particularly like about this video is that it has two explaining "levels". The video itself is sufficient enough to briefly inform and educate about the issue of fracking. But, if anyone wants to learn more (or has problems with some of the statements in the video due to ideological biases), one only needs to look at the lyrics which are posted on the Explainer site and linked at the YouTube video itself. The lyrics contain links to in-depth ProPublica articles that support each of the statements made in the video. A thorough reader can go from these and dig even deeper, looking at primary sources identified in the articles, and so on.
