American Microbiologist Dr. Yuri Gorbi warns fracking brings up buried life forms.

We discover another whole side to the fracking debate, with Dr. Yuri Gorby. He's a microbiologist with a specialty in life deep underground. Gorby tells us fracking is dredging up organisms encased in the earth for the past hundreds of millions of years. Some of them have the potential to change chemistry and life on the surface in ways as yet unknown.

It's sounds like sci fi, but it's truth-fi - and that's just the start, as we explore the tiny world, including toxic rain.
