Exposing the anti-fracking hysteria

The Greens, especially the boy MP, are banging on more and more about “fracking“.

Controversial filmmakers Ann McElhinney and Phelim McAleer announced a crowdfunding campaign today for their new documentary, FrackNation.
The feature-length film looks at the process of fracking for natural gas, demolishing much of the scaremongering surrounding the process and featuring the millions whose lives have been positively transformed by this emerging industry.  FrackNation investigates the health claims surrounding the process, and reveals the startling lack of scientific evidence to substantiate them.

Controversially, McAleer and McElhinney are fundraising for FrackNation on Kickstarter.com.

“Normally, Kickstarter projects are pro-radical environmentalism,” said McAleer.  “FrackNation will be the first documentary funded through Kickstarter to challenge the environmental establishment….”

In a unique fundraising move, McAleer and McElhinney, a husband and wife filmmaking team, have announced that everyone who helps pay for FrackNation will become an executive producer on the film. “This will be a documentary funded by the people for the people,” said McAleer.

FrackNation comes on the heels of a new anti-fracking film is due to be released by activist filmmaker Josh Fox.  Fox made Gasland, an Oscar-nominated film, which propelled fears about fracking into the public arena.  Fox is now planning a HBO-funded Gasland sequel. Fox has received $750,000 to make the new documentary.

“The Hollywood/environmental establishment has wheeled out big bucks to tell its story,” said Ann McElhinney.  “We’re just asking for $150,000.  Ours will be a grassroots film telling real stories about real people across America and the world.”
