Yoko Ono should mind her own business and stick to causes there is some remote chance she might actually understand. Fracking has been going on in the area I live in for 30 or more years and to the very best of my, and the industries knowledge, there are few if any negative side effects. Freezing our asses off in the dark is much worse in my estimation!

have you looked at the cancer rate in your locale. It's nearly one in three now, and it isn't going down despite modern tech. Yoko is just as entitled to her opinion as you are.

I think the people who are so passionate about stopping things like fracking are hypocrates. I have yet to see anyone of them stop heating their homes, using plastics, or driving their cars. Facking also helps provide jobs and keep energy costs from sky rocketing. It would have been nice if this video allowed you to read the articles instead of flashing only part of them and then saying what they say the graphs mean.

There is always more then one side to things and it takes more then a video to convince me. People need to learn how to read the actual research done on both sides and draw their own conclusions. "Green" engergy companies buy polititions as well. They also have their own drive to make money. It's not all about saving the earth, has no one seen the prices on "green" energy? Yes, they only care about the enviorment...

Did you know studies dating from 1976 have reported the problems with the water source lighting on fire from the same levels of gas? This problem goes all the way back to the 1930's. Fracking wasn't around back then and these are facts. Omiting half the truth in "documentaries" does no one any good. People need to stop believe whatever they are told and look into both sides before drawing any conclusions. The oil and gas companies put billions of dollars into restoring damaged enviorments...

The oil and gas companies put billions of dollars into restoring damaged enviorments when accidents happen. They also follow EPA guide lines. Oil and gas do way more then people realize. If you are so against things like this then I suggest you move to an amish community. As long as we rely on oil and gas for almost everything we do on daily, then pretending to hate it is kinda pointless. I would rather the oil and gas company be doing studies to know when to replace and repare things then ignoring things. BTW Iive by TONS of fracking sites... I have yet to be able to set my water on fire... probably because they inspect the well sites monthly for problems and repare things when needed.

I'm not saying fracking is the best thing to ever happen, I'm just saying that there are some companies out their competing in the energy feild and they put big money into making the other side look worse then they are. They tell half truths. Youtube isn't exactly where all research is done. Try peer review journals. Find articles on both sides.

This summer I spent a few days in a little town in the Poconos in Pennsylvania where they were fracking. The town was so poor, and fracking was supposed to bring jobs. It didn't. They brought it outside workers and the town remained poor and the water smelled awful and it chased the wildlife away. It causes more problems than it fixes, and who's to say that all of those "hypocrites" haven't started to drive hybrids or electric cars or heat they homes with more energy efficient gas...

That's a very general statement to make. Even if fracking isn't as bad as this video makes it out to be, why shouldn't we try to find cleaner and more sustainable energy sources? We're going to run out of oil eventually.

I think you don't realise what this is talking about. There are different kind of ways to produce energie. This one is really destroying the water, the earth and the air of whole regions : People are getting sick, water becomes undrinkable, and this polutes much more the air then driving and heating.

But if you want to know, I drive as less as possible, and I heat as less as possible. Money we all need to live, but earning money by destroying everything that grows and lives, I don't thing this is a good idea. And this bussiness makes a few people very very rich. If you like this, perhaps you are a part of this kind of people...

Rebecca, if you knew how little electricity solar could produce, you wouldn't be making uninformed comments like this. Also, I think you fell for an 'earth friendly' scam. Anti-fracking activists have been proven to invent 'evidence'. That's where the earthquake myth came from.

Solar can't even power cars...

solar will never be worth any thing unless it will pay for it-self within 2-3 years. natural gas pays for itself in 2 years or less. its cost effective and the greenest energy money can buy. please get the facts you can find them at state college Pa.

Rebecca i'd like to see solar energy provide the raw material needed to make your next plastic item such as a vibrator, computers, thread, i-phones, food all made possible indirectly or directly by the oil & gas industry..you so ignorantly attack yes I said you are ignorant. If you knew or had the slightest inkling of how oil touches virtually every aspect of your life you will not make such ignorant comments.

The Blackpool earthquake was the first direct evidence of fracking causing seismic activity. Earthquake monitoring equipment in northern British Columbia, Canada, says the report, recorded 216 small earthquakes clustered in a small area around an ongoing fracking project in the northern end of the province. http://crooksandliars.com/susie-madrak/oops-looks-fracking-can-cause-earthqu

Aaron Schutte The evidence that fracking creates earthquakes is conclusive, and well known. The fracking technique involves setting explosions deep underground with a scattergun effect that no-one knows the outcome of. Here in the UK, not renowned for earthquakes at all as we are not on any fault lines, the town of Blackpool has recently been rocked by two earthquakes directly as a result of fracking. Looks like another case of "make money now, to hell with the consequences, let someone else pick up the pieces"...

Aaron You are completely wrong. There is enough solar energy hitting the earth every day to power everything on the planet for a year. we need to put more money in learning how to capture it, not into fracking. If you believe what the oil industry tells you then you've been had. how about solar collectors on every man made surface-roads, the walls and roofs of every building etc. BTW the cancer rate is tied to burning fossil fuels. That's too high a cost for the sake of convenience.

Err Aaron, there are hundreds of thousands of homes in Australia who actually sell power BACK to the electricity companies, so efficient has solar power become. With a 5 Kw system in you will never pay a power bill again. And you can run pool pumps, air conditioners, and hot tubs from just a 5 Kw system here.

This is just the worst thing as not just gas flows through the cement into water tables, it seeps into our soil, our air into so many thing that we don't realize. It also breaks apart beautiful rocks that are gemstones or semi precious gems. If you know me you know how much I love my gems.... Needless to say this looks like a case for Erin Brockovich.

Sorry, I've lived in an area where there's fracking going on frequently, and we've just learned to get our water wells tested for both quality and output, as well as putting into place some sensible safeguards. Does fracking sometimes cause problems? Yes, so you have to put safeguards in place to compensate for the times it does. Do you stop driving because there are sometimes accidents? Not likely. Now tell me how to get off this "cause" because I'm sick of getting all your crap.
