Canadian news video: “16×9: Untested Science: Fracking natural gas controversy”

A new frontier of natural gas production is making controversial headlines. Hydraulic Fracturing or “fracking” is becoming more common in Canada. But experts say “fracking” can cause contaminated ground water, earthquakes and pollute our land with toxic chemicals.
January 10, 2012 Ohio Statehouse Fracking Protest
As this poignant story reveals, a doctor in an emergency room has no time to obtain the secret chemicals in frack fluid under a freedom of information act request. Please consider this short film the federal FRAC Act wake-up call; make the FRAC Act a priority in 2012. If “proprietary information” defines industry concern (as in the formula for Coca Cola), the public does not need to know the quantities of the secret chemicals; the identity of the chemicals will do. The FRAC Act accomplishes that. This is a non-partisan issue. This is a people issue. This is an election year. As fracking expands around the globe, this becomes a global issue too. Please consider our fellow men, women and children everywhere impacted by these undisclosed chemicals. And the children yet to be born. Please watch, share and post the film. Thank you.
