The Promised Land Is Being Fracked! (Video)

Fracking is simply a ponzi scheme according to the prestigious Forbes Magazine.

It is in full bloom in the eastern states and of course in British Columbia where the tantalizing potential has rattled the brains of both the BC Liberals and the resurgent BC NDP.

Well actually the Liberals did OK sort of as they were flying below the radar but publicity is catching up with both parties on this controversial issue as we head towards the May Provincial Election.

The BC Greens ran at both the NDP and the Liberals in an op ed piece published in the Georgia Straight.

It seemed to have registered because along with substantial concern being expressed by those within political tents and without the pressure is mounting on both parties to come clean and disclose the realities of fracking.

The BCNDP Environment Critic Rob Fleming and Energy Critic John Horgan responded to the criticism with their own views and plans for improved processes, monitoring and safeguarding the environment.

The risks are becoming common knowledge and the politicians of all parties should come clean and quit the cheer-leading that has been the common theme with both the NDP and the Liberals.

Our Premier recently returned from a trip to China. She set up a a BC Office there. Why? I mean really, why?

Native Bands in Northern BC report that ‘fracking’has already taken its’ toll on lakes and water supplies in the North creating hardships and stress for those depending on a sustainable ecosystem for their livelihoods and food supplies.

The ‘Fracking Rush’ is such a scam. The market is saturated, prices dropping, and yet governments are clamoring after the ‘big fix.’

Premier Clark is just wriggling in her seat dreaming about all the money she will have to offset the BC Liberal’s miserable handling of the BC economy. Ask Alison Redford how the cash from energy resources is helping out Alberta Christy.Alberta has been reaping the benefits of oil, including that crap from the ‘Tar Sands’ for decades and they are rich! No they are not!

BC Liberal Energy Minister-Rich Coleman will not be flying below the radar on the "Fracking Issue' any longer.

In fact Alberta is  facing a 3 billion dollar plus shortfall. How is that possible?

The Oil Corps are rich enough but the so called tax benefits are ringing hollow. Big guys don’t pay taxes, or at least not their share.

The ‘Dutch disease’ brought to Canadians attention by Federal NDP Leader Thomas Mulcair is registering and it appears that “Alberta’ is a clear example.A number of films are circulating throughout the internet and now a full feature movie called ‘Promised Land’ starring Matt Damon is being released. When Hollywood starts producing films about fracking their drawing power may well resonate witn many viewers who may not have otherwise been brought up to speed about the threats caused by fracking!

Here is a trailer from “The Promised Land.’

    The big fix will not come from more fracking. That will cost us and the future offspring of us. The only out now is legal MJ. The Liberals have stolen the pot and the future and left us with no options.
