Storyline

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. Written by Anonymous

Completely biased and ignorant of the facts
1 May 2014 | by fatmatthSee all my reviews

This movie (I cannot refer to it as a documentary, as it has been carefully scripted) appears to be the gas industry's response to Gasland. The entire movie is a bunch of people with a vested interest in hydraulic fracturing being interviewed. An utter farce.

The industry has either paid jobbers to write glowing 10/10 reviews or made their own staff construct the reviews to try and give a false rating. Who in their right mind goes and gives a documentary 10/10, no room for improvement? They are clearly paid to write these bogus reviews.

I am sure this review in itself will be given poor ratings as well, just like the other negative review of the film on IMDb.
