The fun forum. Discuss anything here.
Anyone watch this movie?
Maddening. If they approve fracking I might just resort to eco-terrorism. ****ing ridiculous what these oil companies get away with. and f*** DICK CHENEY.

I've seen clips of it. Josh Fox isn't the most reliable source of information.
The Examiner? LOL. Is one commentary by a right-wing pundit suppose to disprove the documentary?
Point by point rebuttals of the the right wing "claims"

The Examiner is just one of many sources that refute the claims made in the movie. I just picked the first thing that came up and linked it. There are many sources to include enviornmentalists who say that the "facts" portrayed in the movie are false and/or misleading.
Oh yea? Well please share. Pumping millions of gallons of water 8,000 feet into the ground combined with chemicals that are known carcinogens next to water supplies is plain stupid. Couple that with the fact that the pumps and evaporators are exempt from the Clean Air and Clean Water Act (thanks to the Halliburton loophole) and you have to be a moron to support fracking in any way shape or form.
I'm with you Matt. Many of the towns around me are passing bans, but I fear that my own may not. There are a number of people out here who would be easily lured by the promise of big money. I've already told Mike that I'd move to Skaneateles if that happened--even though we'd only be able to afford a refrigerator box there.
Yea - that's what I'm scared of - people selling out for a quick buck, no thought to the future. Frankly I'm surprised it would even be a discussion on here. How could you love gorges, glens, and waterfalls and be FOR fracking?
I have wondered the same thing. I started a topic in the Finger Lakes forums awhile back and I had the same response/reaction. We're also battling a proposed LPG storage facility on the west side of Seneca Lake. I think that people tend to be pretty passive about it until their land/livelihood is at risk.
Guess I'm a moron then. I took the time to review both sides of the argument, and this has already been discussed extensively in the Fracking thread, no sense in rehashing it. There are always two sides to the story. While there may be negative enviornmental impacts, (which hard evidence is scarce for) my point in my reply was that I wouldn't promote Gasland as gospel on the subject.
Guess so. Quit repeating that there is no hard evidence of environmental impacts. Outright lie. EPA and big business happily in bed together.

Vermont is awesome for a lot of reasons. Nice place too. Good they actually have the foresight to not destroy their own ****ing backyard.
