Triple Divide : A documentary film based on 18 months of investigative journalism “seeking truth about the impact of fracking.” The film features interviews with industry, advocates, landowners, and experts. (sourced July 2013 from http://tripledividefilm.org/ )
Meet the Hawkwoods. Alberta ranchers discuss their experience with high pressure, horizontal hydraulic fracking and the resulting impacts to water quality, air quality, human health, livestock health, land, and their home. More than 70 wells, with multi-well pads, are being drilled near their ranch. They discuss flaring of gas and well effluent, fracking chemicals used, and the underlying geology in which faults can provide pathways for chemicals to enter aquifers. 100s of new wells are planned in the next few years: http://albertavoices.ca/films/hawkwoods/
Short video describes how citizens of Dryden NY responded to industry proposals, and how neigbours and strangers came together to petition local government to ban fracking. More than 170 towns across NY have joined Dryden and banned fracking. The court case goes to to NY’s highest court in spring 2014.
