Obviously, the entire world knows that the shale oil we extract through fracking and the oil we pull from the bowels of the earth are the world’s number one sources for heating our homes and fueling our cars. That gets explained to children in grade one. However, the oil products that light our homes are actually used to support and innovate an incredible number of industries you’d never expect.

Perspective is a funny thing, isn’t it? In the United States, the debate over hydraulic fracturing has reached a fever pitch as protest groups across the country have sprung up to put an end to the practice of extracting shale from the Earth. Even saying the word “fracking” can get you lynched in Boulder, Colorado. In Japan, though, it’s a different story.

It’s a brand new day, folks.

It’s been a really tough year for people hoping to expand fracking projects in the United Kingdom. 2016 began with Greenpeace dropping a fracking installation piece in Parliament Square, and it’s looking to end with one of the most aggressive anti-fracking campaigns ever launched.

Depending on who you ask, the newest advancements for obtaining that shale differ greatly. Chesapeake Energy, for example, is practicing something called, “monster fracking” which could potentially boost well output 70 percent. In Colorado, though, they’re hedging their bets on a new advancement in lateral fracking
