Fracking The Movie(s)

A plethora of fracking movies is highly revealing that shale fracking is now frontline in the energy - environment debate. But checking the fare on both sides, it quickly becomes apaprent which is innuendo and pure propaganda and which is more concerned for hard facts.

The full article is published at Energy Tribune (US), The Commentator (UK) and Canada Free Press.

Here's a taster:

But Gasland’s scary image of ‘setting water on fire’ via a domestic faucet displays a gullible naivity in failing to understand how the natural phenomenon was present way before energy companies ever set foot on the land. Just for good measure, one local farmer demonstrates how methane in water is perfectly common and harmless drinking a glass of water from an aquifer where fracking is currently taking place.

When it comes to Fracking The Movie then, you can be sure of two things. First, the average media hack will likely characterize the pro and anti-fracking ‘movies’ as ammunition in a ‘propaganda war’. That may be the case with theanti-fracking movies, but it is far from the case with the pro-fracking responses. The fact is that Fox’s Gasland is replete with gross misrepresentations which both Truthland and Not Evil, Just Wrong have each labored to correct.

Hi! As the VOCs are evaporated and come into contact with diesel exhaust from trucks and generators at the well site, ground level ozone is produced. Ozone plumes can travel up to 250 miles.
