What the frack is going on?

In beautiful Bonne Bay what do you see?
Gros Morne Mountain and you and me;
The Tableland Mountains overlooking my town,
Of Woody Point. Just look around....

And you'll see clean air and a pristine bay,
And whales and dolphins who like to play;
And people who smile and love to say:
"We're very lucky to live this way....

"With beauty all around us, oh, can't you see?
We got to keep it this way for you and me."
There's really not much that is lacking,
So what's the talk about all this fracking....

Yes, what the frack is going on?
I say, what the frack is going on?
'Cause with the fracking will come cracking,
And our way of life will be gone....

Our way of life will be gone!

Unless we oppose this and be strong,
Our way of life will be gone;
Unless we oppose this and be strong,
And tell that fracking crowd to move along....

And tell that fracking crowd to move along!
And tell that fracking crowd to move along!
And tell that fracking crowd to move along!

From Wikipedia:
Fracking - technique used to release petroleum, natural gas (including shale gas, tight gas, and coal seam gas), or other substances for extraction by induced hydraulic fracturing of various rock layers with a pressurized liquid. This type of fracturing creates fractures from a wellbore drilled into reservoir rock formations. The first experimental use of hydraulic fracturing was in 1947, and the first commercially successful applications in 1949. As of 2010, it was estimated that 60% of all new oil and gas wells worldwide were being hydraulically fractured. As of 2012, 2.5 million hydraulic fracturing jobs have been performed on oil and gas wells worldwide, more than one million of them in the United States. Proponents of hydraulic fracturing point to the economic benefits from vast amounts of formerly inaccessible hydrocarbons the process can extract. Opponents point to potential environmental impacts, including contamination of ground water, depletion of fresh water, risks to air quality, the migration of gases and hydraulic fracturing chemicals to the surface, surface contamination from spills and flow-back and the health effects of these. For these reasons hydraulic fracturing has come under scrutiny internationally, with some countries suspending or banning it. However, some of those countries, including most notably the United Kingdom, have recently lifted their bans, choosing to focus on strong regulations instead of outright prohibition.
