Empower U Ohio Presents Fracknation

Get your popcorn and sodas ready because EmpowerU is bringing you the movie Fracknation this Monday March 5, at 7 pm Connections Church Madiera, OH.

In FrackNation journalist Phelim McAleer faces threats, cops and bogus lawsuits questioning green extremists for the truth about fracking. McAleer uncovers fracking facts suppressed by environmental activists, and he talks with rural Americans whose livelihoods are at risk if fracking is banned. Emotions run high but the truth runs deep.

FrackNation was made after Phelim McAleer confronted GASLAND filmmaker Josh Fox at a Q&A in Chicago. McAleer asked Fox about instances of water being lit on fire well
before fracking occurred in America and why he didn't include that information in GASLAND. Fox said the information "wasn't relevant." McAleer disagreed and put their exchange on YouTube. Fox sued to have it removed. That's when McAleer realized there was more to the story of fracking than Josh Fox was letting on.

FrackNation was funded by 3,305 backers on Kickstarter who generously donated $212,265 to have us investigate the truth about fracking. All funds from oil and gas companies or their executives were explicitly rejected. FrackNation is a film by the people, for the people.

Runtime on the movie is 77 minutes.
