Fracking is Fracking, even when you label it prospecting...Botswana has been screwed, not only by the frackers, but by its own government...just like ours is trying, and in some places succeeding, to do to us.

On a second thought, I'd be very curious to know exactly how much fresh water we have lost to fracking, continent by continent, worldwide. If they haven't drained aquifers dry, they've contaminated streams and rivers, leaving their poisoned, unusable water behind to sink into the land or be strewn across land and water during storms...doesn't count all the wells they're contaminating.
