    Gasland 2

    I just watched the movie/documentary Gasland 2, frightening stuff!

    It really doesn't have a lot to do with vaping or does it?

    Well it isn't directly related but it does show just how much money talks & what big corporations will do to get their own way & how much governments are prepared to be corrupted to allow these corporations to have their way.
    In fact parallels were drawn between these gas mining corps & BT, in the movie.

    I can't find a link to the movie quickly & easily(I watched it on Foxtel) but I did find this on youtube from 60minutes, directly related to the movie & will give you an idea of what is going on:

    Outstanding and shocking doco, just watched it the other night. For those of you with an eye patch it's out there.
    Have a look for "Collapse", "Thrive", "Food Inc", King Corn", "The War You Don't See (John Pilger)", and for an insight into our politicians (this is about psychopathic behaviour) try "I Am Fishead"
    Some of it is a bit out there but still thought provoking.

    The trouble I see in Aus, is if this goes wide scale , the artesian water table is going to be polluted, this will affect the entire continent, not just one region, since if I understand correctly the artesian water is all interconnected...

    I was just going to mention Food Inc. Great doco, and relevant to the sort of corruption and opposition we're seeing.

    Just... don't watch it while you're eating.

    Fracking is making money the only way the big polluters know how. Screwing the environment so they don't have to outlay big money for new infrastructure.

    Investment should be into clean energys which are abundant in Australia. Wind, Solar, Gethermal and wave. People are just too greedy to suffer the losses before the technology becomes sustainable.

    It's an absolute disgrace how these politicians can sit there and absolutely lie. Gutless bunch of cowards

    good armchair commentary guys

    now go out to Roma , Chinchilla and Dalby and see how many families relies on it for a living

    FYI , Halliburton have been in that area doing this for 26 years

    only thing these doco'd to is get lazy uneducated people living in their bubble to speak crap on the internet
