Local group watches film on fracking (Audio included)

The Top of Ohio Patriots met and watched a film on fracking at Ohio Hi-Point Career Center Monday.

The documentary "Frack Nation" was developed by Journalist Phelim McAleer. The film was a response to GASLAND by Josh Fox. Frack Nation took a look at several claims in GASLAND and investigated the facts behind those claims. The film was backed by supporters from kickstarter.com and was able to disprove some of the claims about fracking.

Fracking is the process of extracting natural gas from shale within the earth. Fracking would affect Ohio because the eastern part of the state sits over the Marcellus Shale Shelf, making that area an ideal place to do fracking.

Vice Chairman of the Top of Ohio Patriots, Jim Burkholder said that the film was educational and took a look at the science behind fracking. He also noted that the film’s research had reputable sources from educational institutions.

Burkholder comments on the film.
