What the frack is fracking, youth confused

Times Live 17 September 2012.

Almost two thirds of young South Africans have little idea of what hydraulic fracking is about, consumer insights group Pondering Panda says.

“Of those who claimed they had heard of fracking, only 25 percent thought it referred to a method of extracting natural gas from under the ground,” Pondering Panda said in a statement.

“About 34 percent thought it [fracking] was a way to protect yourself from sunburn, while a further 26 percent believed it was a type of sexual activity.”..
