This week's word in the news: FRACKING

DEFINITION:
An abbreviated and altered term for hydraulic fracturing, which is the process of injecting a high-pressure fluid (usually water mixed with sand and “trade secret” chemicals) into subterranean rocks to force open existing fissures and extract oil or gas.


FOUND IN THE NEWS:
A new campaign ad that features the "Flat Earth Discussion Group," cheese by-products and a man with a sock puppet takes a humorous look at Colorado's fracking battle, but some voters aren't laughing.
