Editorial Reviews

During a time of globally heightened debate, Journalist Phelim McAleer travels across the U.S. and Europe to speak with scientists and Americans living in fracking areas, in order to uncover the science behind the process and to determine its true consequences.

Hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, refers to the process of drilling down into rock and using pressurized fluids to extract energy sources such as natural gas and petroleum. Supporters of fracking state the economic benefit to the U.S. is great and that the process has rigorous standards by which it operates. Opponents of fracking voice concerns about contamination to ground water and land surface, as well as other environmental issues. Join McAleer on the search for the fracking truth.

I loved this DVD for many reasons. I grew up in the rural PA and NY counties featured in the DVD. In fact, the farms shown were similar to my grandfather's farm. When I returned to this area for a visit a few years ago, I was curious about all the NO FRACKING signs along the local roads. The gas drilling sites that I could see from the road appeared to be well organized commercial operations, which could do nothing but help the local economy and our nations energy supply. When I was working on my PhD in Civil Engineering at UC Berkeley in 1972, I had a chance to do some research on hydraulic fracturing at the US Geological Survey (I am also cross trained in Geology). In my opinion, this DVD is scientifically correct and useful for anyone who wants to learn more about "fracking". However, you should be warned that the scientific part is brief...and all you really need to know. Most of the film is about the political nature of the controversy. I believe in the political agenda of America's founding fathers, and therefore enjoyed how this DVD exposed the methods of those following the European Marxist/socialist/communist/liberal/progressive agenda. If you already belong to the later group, and are unwilling to let the truth change your political viewpoint, you are wasting your money if you buy this DVD.

Having seen Gasland I was attracted to this film to get the complete story. The gist of this film is that it is supposed to be completely independent and funded by private donors giving around $263K online. The filmmaker, Phelim McAleer, uses a strategy of using credible sources and first hand interviews with people to get to the truth about fracking. He interviews famers in Pennsylvania that want gas producers to sign leases to use their land for gas extraction. These people claim to suffer no adverse effects from the extraction and say they depend on the income from leasing to survive. He then talks about methane gas as well as other naturally occurring carbon based flammable gases are found underground and how the ability for water to catch on fire has been around long before fracking was started by man around 1947. There are several attempts made by him to interview the producer of Gasland but that person does not cooperate.

So McAleer has had a slam dunk and destroyed the claims made in Gasland? Yes and no.

I liked this film and how he did so much leg work to do the interviews and gather the reports made by governmental agencies. However, he was weak in four vital areas.

1. He interviews farmers who have had the farm in their family 150+ years who claim income from the land leases are required to have the farm survive. What did these people do and how did they survive prior to when fracking really took off in the 21st century in the US? When gas producers were not writing 6 figure checks up front the farms sustained a solvent operation for 100+ years. Why is this not possible now?

It appeared to be a well thought out documentary avoiding unnecessary "Drama" by sticking to the topic. Excellent roster of specialists used throughout helping to validate many important key points. I would highly suggest this documentary to one and all.
Is the controversy over? Not a chance in Hades but documentaries such as this one are a necessity to help clear the issue of the excessive smoke.

This is a great film that unveils the truth about hydraulic fracturing or " fracking " for short. Relying on media reporting alone leaves one in a state of shock at the revaluation that American producers and business men care only about the accumulation of wealth without regard as to HOW their money was made.
The film reveals that they do care how they make money and that they do so without harming anyone at all and the producers of anti fracking films and reports are knowingly misleading the public with no regard for the truth and reality whatsoever.

I grew up in a time when true journalism was prevalent though not always the case. People held a certain amount of skepticism when listening to or reading the news. But for the most part journalist were intent of finding the truth of the matter, getting to it by any and all means. The same was true of documentary film makers. Then Watergate happened. It wasn't that Woodward and Bernstein didn't find the truth, but in becoming the center of attention in that scandal journalism went from intrepid reporters seeking the truth to journalists trying to take center stage and become celebrities instead of reporters.

The same thing happened to documentary film makers. Gone were the days of movies that ranged from interesting to completely boring and in their place were films made by people with agendas instead of those seeking the truth. Sure, the Disney nature films we grew up with had set pieces in them but there was no harm or attack being made with those films. Today's documentary's instead follow the example led by Michael Moore where no matter what the reality is you simply cut things to fit your agenda and leave the rest on the cutting room floor. If it doesn't suit your needs, then it is filed away where no one can find it. In essence, the truth is out there but hidden by the very people who claim to want to show you the truth.

That being said I didn't know what to expect when I watched FRACKNATION. I went in wondering if I was going to get yet another movie that claimed to be a documentary while doing nothing more than pushing its agenda.
