Giornalismo d’inchiesta con colonna sonora!

Alcuni possono anche urlare allo scandalo ma ProPublica ha appena lanciato la sua nuova inchiesta sull’acqua con un videoclip: “My water is on fire tonight”.

E’ ovvio che il videoclip non pretende di bastare a se stesso per spiegare la questione, ma, ProPublica, lo usa per attirare l’attenzione sul problema e sull’inchiesta che hanno realizzato. Ed il messaggio arriva dritto al punto: attenzione a chi controlla l’acqua e a quello che ne può fare! Un buon allarme anche per noi che andremo presto a votare per un referendum che ha molto a che fare con tutto questo!

Buona lettura e buon ascolto dalle frequenze musicali di…..ProPublica!! 🙂

P.S: Le parole…magari volete dilettarvi a cantare 😉

Fracking is a form of natural gas drilling
An alternative to oil cause the oil kept spilling
Bringing jobs to small towns so everybody’s willing
People turn on their lights and the drillers make a killing

Water goes into the pipe, the pipe into the ground
The pressure creates fissures 7,000 feet down
The cracks release the gas that powers your town
That well is fracked….. Yeah totally fracked

But there’s more in the water than just H2O
Toxic chemicals help to make the fluid flow
With names like benzene and formaldehyde
You better keep ‘em far away from the water supply

The drillers say the fissures are a mile below
The groundwater pumped into American homes
But don’t tell it to the residents of Sublette Wy-O
That water’s fracked…. We’re talking Benzene…

What the frack is going on with all this fracking going on
I think we need some facts to come to light
I know we want our energy but nothing ever comes for free
I think my water’s on fire tonight

So it all goes back to 2005
Bush said gas drillers didn’t have to comply
with the Safe Drinking Water Act, before too long
It was “frack, baby, frack” until the break of dawn.

With the EPA out it was up to the states
But they didn’t have the money to investigate
Sick people couldn’t prove fracking was to blame
All the while water wells were going up in flames

Cause it’s hard to contain all the methane released
It can get into the air, it can get into the streams.
It’s a greenhouse gas, worse than CO2
Fracking done wrong could lead to climate change too

Now it’s not that drillers should never be fracking
But the current regulation is severely lacking
Reduce the toxins, contain the gas and wastewater
And the people won’t get sick and the planet won’t get hotter

What the frack is going on with all this fracking going on
I think we need some facts to come to light
I know we want our energy but nothing ever comes for free
I think my water’s on fire tonight
