A flaming faucet in New York

4y ago


Years ago, when Robert Sandell bought his house in upstate New York, the previous owner told him: "Don't smoke in the shower." High levels of methane in Sandell's water well produce the same explosive effect at the center of Josh Fox's documentary blaming hydraulic fracturing as the cause of flaming faucets. The only problem, fracking hasn't happened anywhere near Sandell's house -- or anywhere else in the state. Fracking is banned in New York State.
