I saw a news report on ABC last night,on natural gas fracking - essentially using water to help force out the natural gas from its hiding spot. In the report they showed a guy who lives by the shale and he literally put a lighter under his water faucet while it was running and was able to cause it to go up in flames. Water! Here is the clip.
Apparently there is a movie out called Gasland which is where that clip was pulled from. Quite amazing stuff.
Here is the trailer, the 'flammable water' is after the 2 minute mark.
