Gasland Director Hides Full Facts. A response to the Fracking Hell video on here earlier. Seems the water-on-fire stunt predates the fracking.

Is he trying to imply that because certain people had methane in their water before fracking started, therefore fracking definitely does not cause methane contamination into groundwater?


No. He's asking why the documentary made no mention of the fact that these people could set their water on fire before fracking started. By leaving that out, the documentary leads the viewer to the conclusion (explicit or implicit) that fracking caused them to be able to set their water on fire.
It`s irresponsible journalism.

[quote]yes methane naturally comes up from the ground which can cause water to be lit on fire, however that does NOT discredit this movie about how they drat the environment around the fracking sights[/quote]
It doesn`t completely discredit it, but it certainly raises concern over the director`s journalistic practice and integrity. He was clearly aware of the previous reports.

They could light the water from their tap on fire but only under some very rare occurences, like most of the time, the flame of their lighter would just go a little brighter if they didn't wet the tip of it before it does... actually nothing to do with what you actually see in Gasland... which is fire from their tap water at 100% occurences. In other words, all the freaking time. Like non-stop undrinkable methane polluted water.

There was like 1/100000000 particle of dangerous chemical per droplet of water beofre.

Now it has like 99/100 particle of dangerous chemical per droplet of water.

I've been living out on the blackfoot reservation near Glacier National park where a lot of Fracking has been going on. There`s been an explosion of cancer cases in the area, the locals believe it`s from fracking. I`ve noticed it`s hard to meet someone over 45 in the area that hasn`t been diagnosed with some kind of cancer.

@OldOllie: Shame on you for exaggerating! It's the 587,384th time this YEAR!
Not even close to the record set in 2007, eh?
