Re: “This land is Gasland

A very good job with the gas land film. Not bad for an armature Josh Fox, Wow! Water on fire! Don’t be so mislead by things. Actually I could take a video camera inside a nuclear plant and have everybody ready to hang them. Or in a coalmine. Fact is I drive all over the gas fields of Arkansas and am familiar with the areas they filmed. I can also take you right there to each spot and show you the facts. Everything about this film was misleading. For example where they were showing all the deforestation it was caused by logging not the gas industry. The water on fire? This has been common in places that has no oil or gas wells for miles. Actually I will tell you a little secret about his film at the end of this.
If they started building a nuclear plant down the road from your house you would probably have a problem with it. If your neighbors started digging a coal mine you would have a problem with it. Nobody wants it when it is in sight of him or her but they sure enjoy using it. Our modern society cannot make it without hydrocarbons. If we all reverted back to riding horses the NJ would have major complains over the millions of tons of manure building up in the streets. The main thing that has made the gas industry boom is today’s very accurate horizontal drilling. Now the gas industry has become a major threat to the coal and nuclear industry. Coal and nuclear cannot compete with this cheaper energy. So in response they now spend millions to try to take down the gas industry and get energy prices up where nuclear and coal can be more profitable. Nuclear could compete with natural gas if they would just do away with a lot of the redundant safety regulations. Considering the jet stream just build them east of the Mississippi.
Some people have been to believe that you don’t have to fracture a well to get gas. This whole topic is a lie. Fact is very very few wells will produce without being fractured. So if you ban fracking then you ban hydrocarbons.
Being raised in the wheat country of Oklahoma I learned at a very young age “You don’t cuss the farmer with your mouth full”. This would be like the people out in Oklahoma all grouping up to protest and stop the wheat trucks from running up and down the road. Then going home and have bread with their supper. When people STOP using hydrocarbons THEN they can express disapproval of them. As for the northeast states I hope you can run all of them out and back to Arkansas. Read the news. Our state legislature will have their hands full the next few weeks figuring out what to spend all our budget surplus on. If you send them packing we can do even better next year.
As for Josh Fox’s little secret, he used hydrocarbons while making that film!
