Fracknation is made by a couple who also made other anti-environmental films: Mine Your Own Business (about coal mining) and Not Evil Just Wrong (about Al Gore and An Inconvenient Truth). They claim funding came from people support but the crowd funding source was industry funded. (I can get back up on that).

 This is industries attempt at discrediting Josh Fox. I know Josh and his Mother and they are genuinely sad at the loss of their pristine land. They, among many of their neighbors are trying to bring public attention to this.

 Please read up on fracking. Do searchs on youtube, google, read up at sites like saneenergyproject.org

 There are many myths that industry is spending a lot of money to promote. Industry commercials say it is safe, green, environmentally better than oil and nuclear. This is known as greenwashing. There is much they are not telling you. Like fracking pollutes so much more in the beginning of the process that, not withstanding that it burns cleaner, it actually causes a worse case of CO2 in the atmosphere fracking for the "natural" gas.

 Renewable times has come. Wind, waves, solar has come a long way. If a fraction of the amount of subsidies given to the oil companies were given to the renewables we would be on the way to a much more sustainable future.

 Do you trust govt agencies blindly? Do you trust them to report accurately your drinking water contamination?
 Pennsylvania's "Department of Environmental Protection" caught again withholding testing data on water quality near drilling sites.

 When you see an article it is always a good idea to read the comments after to get more of the story.

 "Fracking has not been proven to be safe to the water supply and there is real evidence it is not . The fossil fuel companies are allowed to keep their proprietary brews of chemicals used in the fracking water a secret.
 These chemicals were not used in fracking years ago, and not done on the scale of the water and chemical injections being done these days." 

 I can get you some water to drink from a tap in an affeced area in Dimock, PA. Who wants some?
