It's real that some water includes a lot natural gas that you can light it. Stars are now against fracking, the injection of chemicals into the ground to split rocks to release oil and gas.

Artists Against Fracking opposes hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, and boasts members including Yoko Ono and Sean Lennon, the widow and son of musician John Lennon, actors Mark Ruffalo and Susan Sarandon.

The group says forcing water and chemicals deep into shale deposits to extract gas threatens consuming water and the environment. Artists Against Fracking website implores, "Tell Governor Cuomo: Don't Frack New York.".

Artists Against Fracking group and nearly 200 entertainers are gaining attention and support in the dispute, they succeeded in getting politicians to ban fracking in New York, Maryland and Vermont.

They recently went to an anti-fracking event in Albany with Ruffalo, stars Zooey Deschanel, Alec Baldwin and Hugh Jackman, and Lady Gaga, together with various other long time protestors such as David Crosby and Paul McCartney.

A week ago, Artists Against Fracking extensively released a video through Skype from numerous locations featuring lots of performers singing a Sean Lennon song, "Don't Frack My Mother." In it, Yoko Ono sings part of the chorus, "Don't frack me!".
