Truthland nominated for Epic Fail award.
One has to assume the Fracking Mafia documentary makers would choose their best case example for their documentary Truthland, that was advertised as the Fracking Mafia’s answer to Gasland.
Shelly Depue, the protagonist in Truthland, forgot to mention that Williams Petroleum is under investigation for numerous violations at the wells on her property including faulting casing that has allowed gas to bubble up for over a year. And her neighbors have contaminated water.
An excerpt from Truthland shows Shelly examining a well casing on-site with a former Pennsylvania DEP employee, who describes its safety features: “Multiple layers of protection … You can see nothing’s going to get in or out of this pipe.” Yet this is exactly what occurred. WPX’s improperly cased wells on the Depue property are now being cited in a lawsuit brought by the neighbors affected, who are currently receiving drinking water from the gas drillers. It’s not known whether the Depues’ water has been harmed by the casing leaks. from LittleSis
You can see some of the violations at the Dupue well HERE. I have them all but there are so many I’m not sure how to make them all available online.
So far, no reporters have taken me up on my offer to supply them with these materials so we will have to be our own media.
In the meantime, the question and answer sessions are rather unpleasant at the Truthland screenings. In the video below, notice how they say that the Dupue well is in PA and things in NY are entirely different. Raise your hand if they said that in your area.
I would like to thank the Fracking Mafia for proving what we now believe: Fracking cannot be done right or safely.
