Dear President Obama

© Carlo Allegri

During President Obama’s tenure, extreme energy extraction grew faster than anyone could have predicted, putting in harm’s way the 17 million people in America who live within 1 mile of a new gas or oil rig. This film is a direct appeal to the president, and all elected officials, to consider carefully the growing evidence proving that hydraulic fracturing for oil and gas is hardly the path to energy independence that many promote. Interviews with scientists, economists, geologists and whistleblowers provide the core information we hope will convince the current and future presidents to join the ‘anti-fracking’ majority that is growing across the US.
