Had to Get Myself Back to the Garden 9


July 26, 2016

As I continued to walk northward along the river last Tuesday, I saw concentric arcs in the water. Coming closer, I could see that they were being made by gas bubbling from under the shale shelf of the shoreline. I’m guessing that this is the shale gas of fracking fame/infamy.

    • Thanks, Barry. I went from oh-what’s-making-those-ripples to oh, gas. Then when I started writing the blog post and saw that I’d written “gas bubbling from under the shale,” I thought “shale gas.” And it was only when I Googled shale gas that I was reminded that shale gas is what fracking tends to be about. So, a series of discoveries.

  2. Crazy! I love the way you were led from one thing to the next – happens all the time, in this glorious age of google…so much easier than an encyclopedia.

    • Agree, even if you can’t always trust the information. In general, though, I think Wikipedia is pretty trustworthy.
