Talisman Energy, a Canadian natural gas company, has a coloring book for kids about the glories of fracking! It stars “Talisman Terry” who is called “the friendly fracosaurus.” No really. This isn’t an Onion article, it’s an actual piece of propaganda by the natural gas fracking industry. It’s using this as part of an outreach strategy in Pennsylvania, where it has a lot of business and has been distributing them locally. It has puppies, kittens, American flags, the aforementioned friendly fracosaurus and a whole lot of not mentioning the controversies that surround the natural gas and fracking industries. It also tries to teach children that fracking produces rainbows and smiling suns (see above photo from the coloring book). Via Think Progress.

The coloring book is here: Fracking Coloring Book (PDF). See also the Pittsburgh Post-Gazzette’s article, “Color me fracked: Energy industry produces coloring book to make case for gas drilling to kids“
