You’re Fracked sunshine

Phelim McAleer, the director of Not Evil, Just Wrong, prods shock-doc Gasland director about the truthiness of his felim film:

If you didn’t know. Fracking is a method of extracting gas from shale rock formations. Done by mixing water and various lubricants deep into the shale formations and under pressure cracking the shale and thus liberating the gas trapped within.

He certainly tries to wriggle out. In my opinion he loses.


  1. Don't really understand what the issue is here. Apart from Greenoid hysteria.

    I used to work underground in South Wales, the NCB would strip eighteen inches to six feet of coal out of the strata, as the face advanced they would let the whole rock structure collapse into the void. Made some spectular bangs I can tell you.

  2. They're terrified that their green agenda could be put back by hundreds of years. Shale gas is a reasonably less pollutant than coal, and most certainly is a good energy source.
