Just went and saw the movie
hosted by a local group here in town. While I am not associated with the politics of these folks, I did want to see what all the hullabaloo has been about with this homemade flick.
Wow, talk about a lit stick of dynamite! Lots of emotional content, little factual context around the content. Sure makes gas drilling and hydro fracing look bad. REAL BAD.
While I understand that industry typically doesn't give much credence to stuff like this, I'm here to tell you this is just the fodder the tree huggers need to get a bunch of people fired up and push for bad legislation.
I wanted so bad to ask the one question that wasn't presented and needs to be asked "How does fracturing a well at 10,000 feet in-depth that produces radial fractures of extent of at most 3000 feet contaminate a surface watershed or a fresh water aquifer at a depth of less than 1000 feet in-depth?" Given the number of people between me and the door, discretion was the better part of valor today, but still, we gotta get people in the industry to start getting some factual information out in the right channels or we're gonna get stomped.
