This movie should be mandatory for all American citizens - once the air is poisoned and the water undrinkable, it won't matter how much gas we have - we'll all be dead.

Many might disagree, obviously including Obama, but by all we know the answer is a clear YES

Well, I AM a resident of rural, small town Pennsylvania and I can tell you we're not *insurgents*. We're not *insurging* because we love our fracking, natural gas companies. Contrary to popular belief, BEFORE fracking we were dying with our last gasping breaths. Fracking has been part of our lives for well over 15 years now and it's done nothing but improve our lives dramatically. Employment rates and family incomes have tripled, schools and health care has been subsidized, businesses are re-opening, and family-owned farms are thriving once again. One company alone has poured over $2 billion into local economy.
All aspects of the drilling industry are a matter of public record including any violations cited by very strict state safety inspections ~ of which there have been none. Our water and air quality is pure. We've had no accidents, and no, our drinking water does not burn nor have our farm animals been sickened! The drilling operations and the wells themselves are unobtrusive and don't impact our daily lives or the beauty of our mountains and valleys.
Just for the record, we have over 1200 wells currently in operation in the Tri-County area.

I am just learning about fracking and living in a MN rural area with farms all around, I'm not liking what I see and read about fracking. Will keep researching. Noted with thanks.

Yes it is one of the many ways the corporations, politicians and elites could kill us with their need of money, greed and power
