A video posted on the Facebook page of NSW Green MP Jeremy Buckingham (which has since gone viral). To wit:

Gas explodes from Australian river near fracking site. I was shocked by force of the explosion when I tested whether gas boiling through the Condamine River, Qld was flammable. So much gas is bubbling through the river that it held a huge flame. There has been concern that fracking and extraction of coal seam gas could cause gas to migrate through the rock. Not only is it polluting the river and air, but methane is an extremely potent heat trapping gas. Fugitive emissions from the unconventional gas industry could be a major contributor to climate change and make gas as dirty as burning coal.

This evening.

Outside the Ireland Oil & Gas 2014 Summit being held at the Conrad Hotel, Dublin.

Sponsored by insurance giant Aon, Tony O’Relly Jnr’s Providence Resources and other disinterested parties.

So what the frack’s going on inside!?

“The Summit will provide delegates with an overview of the fiscal regime and legislations relating to exploration and production in both the Republic of Ireland and Northern Ireland. . It will ultimately provide you with the opportunity to enhance your understanding of the potential of the region at this crucial time, when a new licencing round covering most of Ireland’s Atlantic margin will soon commence.

Oh.

The 2nd Annual Ireland Oil & Gas 2014 Summit (IrelandSummit)

Dr Roy Lowry of Plymouth University demonstrates the deeply satisfying explosive power of liquid nitrogen returning to its gaseous state.

Wait for it.
