Frack Them All!

Storyline

Russia Today investigates the fracking epidemic in rural areas all over the United States in Frack Them All! Industry representatives claim every possible precaution is taken in the natural resource extraction process that has become popular, and a lightning rod for criticism, in recent years, but residents in areas where extraction sites have been built coming down with a slew of unexplained illnesses and ailments are just one example of the data being compiled showing those precautions are not nearly effective enough.

Whereas traditional drilling has been a vertical method straight down into the earth below it, fracking is a process where a drill descends to a desired depth, then turns at a 90-degree angle and extends for thousands of feet to the location where the natural gas is believed to be trapped. A mix of water, sand, and various chemicals are then pumped into the well at extremely high pressure to create fissures in the shale so the gas can escape.

The gas is extracted through the drill, and the waste water used in the process works its way to the surface where it needs to be stored and disposed of safely to avoid contaminating all it comes in contact with. The water is many times saltier than even sea water, and frequently picks up radioactive materials and toxic metals such as arsenic. Needless to say, these byproducts create a substantial health risk to communities surrounding the areas where the drilling takes place.

The film focuses on a number of residents in regions where this exact exploitation is running rampant. Randy Moyer, an activist in Portage, Pennsylvania that is also a victim of nearby drilling, is suffering from rashes, swelling, tooth decay and loss, tightening of joints - all of which have been diagnosed as chemical exposure symptoms, symptoms he and his wife believe to be correlated with nearby drilling.

A number of other activists are also profiled engaging in a range of protest and investigative efforts that are aimed towards bringing this issue further into the public eye and actually getting government officials to take action against companies reaping tremendous rewards at the expense of human life crippled and lost in the process.

    Yes we need the energy, we need the jobs, but anyone who does not stand up for our water safety is a coward, yes? Water flows downhill

    What the F&^K are these PSYCHOPATH Jew Zionist, Puppet polititians doing, Oath Keepers, Militia Time to Take your Government out!

  3. Billiard

    Very sad...Americans are throwing their freedoms and future away for very short term monetary gain...our arrogance is staggering.

  4. Kansas Devil

    It appear to be yet another emotional appeal documentary. Emotional appeals never work in fixing these kinds of problems. Cold, hard, indisputable facts presented by verified authorities is required.

    1. fnertz

      Ok. Let me get this straight. What you want is a whistleblower.

      You want a whistleblower to stand up and shed everything he or she has - job, house, friends, collegues, everything. He or she will never get another job in their profession because they "spilled the beans" so to speak. They will be up against endless lawsuits from the companies that make HUGE sums of money from this industry. And they can keep it going for decades. And they will.
      What you want is this little person to stand up against these giants and completely ruin his or her life. Because that is what happens when you take these giants on.

      That's kind of a tall order. Who the hell are YOU to ask this of anyone? Hmm? Isn't it more fair of US to ask YOU to look at the evidence that is there already?

      Let me ask you finally: Are high levels of uranium and strontium in your water - is that "emotional appeal"? "Heavy nosebleeds"? Blowbacks, radiation. Still "emotional appeal"?

      Who the hell ARE you?!?!? How about I ask YOU to stand up and pay some attention already?!?!

    There have been other conspiracy theories about misdeeds of the industry - coal mining, oil tar sands, tobacco, asbestos, thalidomide ... I could go on. In every case many people challenged the whistle blowers. In all those cases, the industry was proven to be acting criminally while stashing away billions of dollars. Given the record, I do not need any more proof from the whistle blowers. The industry is guilty unless proven innocent.

    1. Fabien L

      With blanket accusations like that, courts will become irrelevant soon. With your industry accusation, you've declared every company involved in fracking guilty of the misdeeds done by probably a handful.

    2. Paul Gloor

      The courts are there for the to challenge the accusations. I understand they have security and whatnot to contend with, but they can choose to allow publicly selected 3rd party professionals to check the facts and make a lot of people happy, whatever the results. Things like this have to be transparent to the public.

    3. Fabien L

      That should be the EPA responsibility. What's the point of having regulations if no one is responsible for testing if it is respected when a complaint is made? What are they protecting if they can't even test the water coming out of contaminated water treatment plants?

  6. Doris

    call Greenpeace

  7. Skeptic

    Russia Today is there to brain wash everyone with conspiracy theories, so that actual events don't seem so bad.

    1. Hikerdudette

      And the U.S. doesn't?

    2. TheDanishViking

      Please! Russians today are hyped into a national frenzy and it is pathetic that the Russian media is meanwhile pointing fingers at other nations.

  8. Fabien L

    I don't deny poorly executed fracking can cause serious damage to the environment and leaks can cause health problems. But that documentary is very short on scientific evidence.

    The guy that says he has a water analysis before and after fracking and lists a bunch of isotopes that appeared after the fracking is misleading. No potable water analysis company I know of will test for uranium or thorium. We also don't get any concentration so they could be totally innocuous concentrations you can find anywhere on the planet.

    Where are the blood tests and medical reports for the man that says he has radioactive burns? The palm test is not a medical diagnosis...

    Also the guy that says that the Uranium 235 they find is weapon grade doesn't know anything about weapon grade Uranium. It needs to be highly enriched to be used in nuclear warheads. You can't possibly find that in nature or anywhere on the commercial market in U.S.A. so it's impossible there is highly enriched Uranium used in fracking.

    It was either a poorly researched documentary or it's trying to make believe the whole of Pennsylvania is highly radioactive which it is not.

    1. Patrick Adrien Varencaus

      When you dont know , dont disinform ! Yaa they are all cooks ? ya thats right !! Should i wish you a bad cancer ? oh no i m just not like that ! Do you know wath pain is at least ? doubt it you puffed up with pride dude !!

    2. Fabien L

      I was only questioning the radioactivity allegations. As I stated in my first sentence, there is serious risk of contamination.

      I only seriously doubt the radiation hypothesis as it's very easy to locate and diagnose. If the whole area or water was radioactive, it wouldn't be hard to have scientists measure it instead of spreading that "information" in a documentary without any verification.

      It's not like RT can't hire someone to conduct independent tests instead of having that "journalist" film himself taking pictures.

    3. Pixie Roberts

      Get informed! There's plenty available out there, from the US, Australia, the UK, YouTube. Just don't seek info on mainstream American to as its part of the reason why so few people know about this n why you doubt it yourself. and Gasland etc.

    4. Fabien L

      Nowhere do I see Uranium or Thorium mentioned in credible articles.

    5. TGOBP

      I have to correct you on a couple of points. The guy that was talking about the water tests showed the 'pre-test' paper, done by the gas company, which was tested by Northeast Environmental Laboratory, Inc. according to the paper. He said 'the DEP got involved' and found the contaminants after fracking began. So you are assuming he used a 'potable water analysis company', he said he went off the DEP's findings , a State department's test results.

      The guy who said they find Uranium 235 said that it was SOMETIMES good enough for weapons grade... not what you're indicating, all of it. The fact it isn't found naturally in nature at that refinement backs up his reasoning that it isn't natural if those concentrations are found. There was also the person with the radiation meter in their kitchen window sill that showed an above average reading.
      I do agree with you when you said the doco was short on scientific information. I too wish it stuck more with facts instead of going for the emotional response.

    6. Fabien L

      You can't find any highly enriched weapon grade Uranium in nature, period. The only way you could maybe find it in nature is if some plane lost a nuke by mistake and it didn't explode. Enriched Uranium is a type of uranium in which the percent composition of uranium-235 has been increased through the process of isotope separation. Natural uranium is 99.284% U238 isotope, with U235 only constituting about 0.711% of its weight. Weapon Grade Uranium is 80% plus U235 and costs a fortune to produce.

      The entire production of the Manhattan project, about 50 kilograms (110 lb) of uranium enriched to 89% uranium-235 was delivered to Los Alamos by July 1945. The entire 50 kg, along with some 50%-enriched, averaging out to about 85% enriched, were used in Little Boy.

      It is completely insane to think they use weapon grade uranium in fracking as there are only 2000 tons of it on the planet, it is highly controlled by governments and it's definitely not something that ends up in the hands of civilians. A typical nuclear weapon contains Highly Enriched Uranium worth more than $600,000.

      You are correct when you say I am assuming he used a potable water analysis, too bad we only got a glimpse of it as that lab offers several types of analysis. My remark was that you can't compare 2 reports (before/after) if some isotopes weren't on the first test.

      As for the windowsill test, there are many sources of radiation in a house including Radon seeping in from the ground, granite countertops, old chinese ceramics and uranium-tainted glassware.

    7. TGOBP

      I agree mate, I might have been a bit ambiguous in my wording. It looks like you know more about Uranium than I do, but I agree, from what I do know 'weapons grade' concentrations of Uranium is not naturally found in nature. Do you know much about the 'spent Uranium' that is used in non-nuclear weapons in recent times? He may have meant something along those lines... the term 'weapons grade' I agree was used to indicate the stuff used to make bombs in the past... he might have been talking about the 'spent Uranium'... technically I suppose that could be considered 'weapons grade' now?
      That's why I think if what the bloke claimed is anywhere near accurate it is important and enlightening.

      I also agree, very much, that the 'doco' would have been much better with some more defined, exact information, and better tests. I wonder if that reading from the window sill is within the normal range for that type of home?

      Here in Aus, especially in my State of Queensland, there is more and more fracking going on, and very little accurate information can be accessed though the companies or our government. Here, they are now even allowed to hire State Police as 'security guards' for their gas fields. They claim that is justifiable because the gov. considers the field a likely target of 'terrorism'. I have said before, obviously the 'terrorists' are the farmers in this case. :( I've seen footage of farm dams burning etc. from here. Quite disconcerting when the 'officials' either can't, or won't release proper details about what exactly is going on.

    8. Fabien L

      I listened to what he said once more (20:15 mark) and he said "Uranium 235, that's something that's weapons grade, this stuff is so potent". I seriously doubt he meant depleted Uranium as that has a lower concentration of Uranium 235 than natural Uranium. Depleted Uranium used by the U.S. Department of Defense contain less than 0.3% U-235.

      I also couldn't find a credible independent source that cites Depleted Uranium as being used in fracking. My hypothesis is that bare chested truck driver is only spurting "stuff" all wrong because he doesn't understand what he is talking about.

    9. TGOBP

      You're probably correct mate, I don't doubt most of the people 'quoting' things on this 'doco' don't fully understand what they're talking about. Most if not all.

      Proper testing results would have been very useful to help gain more knowledge. The fact they didn't show much better those supposed results does not sit well with me. I don't know, but I also don't rule it out as beyond possible... depleted Uranium would actually fit the requirement better would it not? It's a lower concentration than natural U, so it theoretically should be more easy to find those concentrations than 'weapons grade', making him technically correct. (I agree it doesn't fit the context, but he might have misunderstood that info/ results himself to mean that?) I also recall seeing that depleted U can cause health problems... it was a 'doco' about some US returned Vet's getting sick, they thought from spent (shot off) depleted U rounds. (one of the Military Dr.s that was over there testing for them was one of the main people featured, and was saying his ill health was because of that, its safe until it's used and blasted to small bits they were claiming.)

      I wouldn't put it past those gas companies to 'dispose' of depleted U if there was a profit in it for them. I'm not saying they do or don't.. just going on recent history says they shouldn't be trusted. We (all countries) need our governments to keep a very close eye on what we allow to be done to our natural resources, especially the most important ones of air, food and water.

      I think that money for Fracking would be better spent on renewable energy, both R & D and infrastructure, than pumping sh1t into our ground that makes taps, bores and dams flammable... or like here also currently opening up even more coal mines. :(

    10. Fabien L

      I have no proof whatsoever what you write and he says is remotely right. I can pretend they dump Alien spaceships in these wells, without proof, it's hearsay.

      I am not pro-fracking but when claims are made that companies are knowingly poisoning their employees with Uranium 235, I need some tangible proof and analysis to give it credential.

    11. TGOBP

      The last I saw here, the MP in charge of it, when asked what was being pumped into the ground, said he didn't know. To me, that's not good enough.

      I also agree, proper evidence is required to back assertions, and as I've indicated, I don't know about Uranium.
      It doesn't take a degree to know that methane bubbling up through the water supply isn't a good thing though.

      When the people doing it for profit, and the people that are supposed to be overseeing it won't give out details, that's not only hard to get any evidence, but does raise a red flag in my mind.
      If it's all harmless... why hide it.

    12. Fabien L

      Here is a list of some additives used in the U.S.A. :

      Obviously, they don't use all of these at the same time as they would
      get some explosive chemical reactions. I like that in U.K. they can
      only use 'Non-Hazardous' chemicals. Hopefully, Australia has a similar regulation.

      I found the fracking fluids disclosure for Australia by Halliburton. Just google "halliburton fluids disclosure" then click the Australia map on their website. Looks like it's mostly Water and sand/silica with a few additives that amount to a maximum of 2% of the whole mix.

      Shhh!!! This is clearly cold war propaganda from the US... The Russians and everyone else need to spend thousands of hours with costly, specialized machines to obtain tiny amounts of "weapons grade" Uranium, but Americans find it just lying around! Good luck in the arms race ya dirty reds! /s
