simply not true
20 August 2014 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Fracking does seem to have a lot going against it, suspicious sounding energy firms with undisclosed toxic mixes pumped into the earth at rock busting pressures, landscapes littered with the mechanical detritus of the process, ugly scarred lands and scared people. Josh Fox certainly saw an issue that would would project his directing career far across this land and abroad causing the wringing of hands by many who take more than just a passing interest in the well being of our planet. People just like myself. And in the second film he of course steps up his attacks on the industry and his own critics. Except for one, or I should say two film makers Phelim McAleer and Ann McElhinney whom Josh seems to wish would be swallowed by the void. Their film FrackNation examines in detail the Gasland mythos and shows just how much Josh is willing to do to cover up his fictions whilst a gullible public far from the actual fray and enjoying the benefits of the fossil fuels they guzzle daily are taken in yet again by the distortion of fact and science. If nothing else just consider that if fracking were discontinued and everyone switched to solar panels where would all the rare earths come from needed for their manufacture? Have you ever seen the size of the open pit mines extracting these rare minerals or the paltry amount that is extracted from all the earth and rocks removed by juggernaut earthmoving machines? Not to mention the pollution caused by the processing. If you have watched the Gaslands movies you really owe it to yourself to also see Fracknation. Then you can decide for yourself. You'll see how false and evasive Josh is when confronted by the film makers who, being fair minded, wanted nothing more than to speak with Josh. You will see the family with the exploding faucets also revealed as simple minded hucksters so taken in by Josh and his crew they are prepared to lie to the EPA. I have given the film two stars because, in fairness it is a very well put together documentary but it is also an illustration of how easy it is to gain fame and attention if you are prepared to play to the publics worst fears.
