Spare the Karoo: Shoo Shell Away!

“Fracking requires vast amounts of fresh water…”

That word, “fracking,” sounds like a curse, or something worse.  To be honest I had never heard of it until a day or so ago. Petroleum giant Shell (among other usual suspects) is proposing to mine gas in the Karoo using fracking.

Now we all know that Shell’s reputation is as clean as a baby’s bum (before or after?). No wonder they throw millions at ad agencies and hit squads.

THE PEOPLE OF THE REPUBLIC OF SOUTH AFRICA DO NOT WANT SHELL TO DESTROY THE KAROO!

Is that clear enough to you, Shell bosses with big asses?
