Mark Crispin Miller posted a map of ‘fraccidents‘ on his News from Underground site.

The country is in the midst of an unprecedented gas drilling boom — brought on by a controversial technology called hydraulic fracturing or “fracking.” Along with this fracking-fueled gas rush have come troubling reports of poisoned drinking water, polluted air, mysterious animal deaths, industrial disasters and explosions.
