Description

FrackNation follows journalist Phelim McAleer as he faces gun threats, malicious 911 calls and bogus lawsuits when questioning green extremists for the truth about fracking. Fracking is going to make America one of the world's leading energy producers and has become the target of a concerted campaign by environmentalists who want it banned. In FrackNation McAleer travels across the USA and Europe to uncover the science suppressed by environmental activists and ignored by much of the media. He talks with scientists and ordinary Americans who live in fracking areas and who tell him the truth behind the exaggerations and misrepresentations of anti-fracking activists. (Rated: G) GWINNETT SCREENING ROOM

"FrackNation Review"
Variety (January 10, 2013)
Those nursing the suspicion that Hollywood politics are awash in knee-jerk liberalism may well have their cynicism validated by "FrackNation," a counterargument to the outcry over the natural-gas retrieval process known as "fracking" recently explored in Gus Van Sant's feature "Promised Land."
