In this explosive follow-up to his Oscar®-nominated film GASLAND, filmmaker Josh Fox
uses his trademark dark humor to take a deeper, broader look at the dangers of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, the controversial
method of extracting natural gas and oil, now occurring on a global level (in 32 countries worldwide).
GASLAND PART II, which premiered at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival, shows how the stakes
have been raised on all sides in one of the most important environmental issues facing our nation today. The film argues that
the gas industry's portrayal of natural gas as a clean and safe alternative to oil is a myth and that fracked wells inevitably
leak over time, contaminating water and air, hurting families, and endangering the earth's climate with the potent greenhouse
gas, methane. In addition the film looks at how the powerful oil and gas industries are in Fox's words "contaminating
Hydraulic fracturing, or "fracking," is the process of pumping
large quantities of water, sand and chemicals deep underground at high pressures in order to release trapped natural gas from
tight rock formations, especially shale. Over the last decade, advances in fracking methods, such as horizontal drilling,
have led to a dramatic increase in U.S. shale gas production. Tens of thousands of fracking wells now operate in twenty states,
producing over seven trillion cubic feet of shale gas per year, or 25% of the total U.S. supply of natural gas. While
fracking has been a boon for the oil and gas industry, it has been devastating to the environment. Each well is injected with
millions of gallons of fresh water containing a mix of toxic chemicals. Up to 50% of this fluid returns to the surface, having
been further contaminated with methane and other hazardous substances released from the shale, including the radioactive element
radium-226. Much of this toxic wastewater leaks into nearby groundwater, polluting streams and aquifers. (In some cases the
methane contamination is so high that residents living near fracking wells are able to light their drinking water on fire.)
The rest of the wastewater is either injected into empty, underground rock formations or shipped off to conventional water
treatment facilities. However, these facilities are not equipped to handle radioactive material or other types of contaminants
found in fracking wastewater, which they simply discharge into rivers and streams. And questions remain as to whether underground
rock formations, many of which have been damaged by fracking, can permanently contain the wastewater. Furthermore, the USGS
confirmed in May, 2012 what many people had already suspected, that the underground disposal of fracking wastewater has been
responsible for the twenty-fold increase in earthquakes seen in regions where fracking takes place. Fracking wells also
emit hazardous air pollutants, including benzene and toluene, that can cause cancer and other serious health effects. Residents
of Dish, TX who live near fracking wells have reported headaches and blackouts, and many of their horses have gone blind or
developed other neurological impairments. In six Texas counties with intensive shale gas development, asthma rates are three
times higher than the Texas average. And in Wyoming, fracking has caused ground-level ozone pollution in some residential
areas to exceed amounts recorded in Los Angeles. Fracking also releases large quantities of methane, a greenhouse gas 20 times
more potent than CO2, giving shale gas a larger global warming footprint than oil. While the oil and gas industry touts
fracking as a "game changer" that will lead the U.S. to "energy independence," these claims have been
widely criticized as false and intentionally misleading. High drilling costs and rapid decline rates of fracked wells suggest
shale gas is uneconomical in the long run, and hundreds of internal industry documents and emails leaked to the New York Times
describe shale gas development as a "Ponzi scheme reminiscent of Enron," where "flipping land leases"
and "conning investors" is more profitable than the actual gas. Despite the environmental consequences, congress
passed the Energy Policy Act of 2005, which exempted the fracking industry from virtually all environmental regulations, including
the Clean Air Act, Clean Water Act, and Safe Drinking Water Act. In May, 2012 the EPA outraged independent scientists and
residents of Dimock, PA, by declaring the town's water safe to drink even though it contained unsafe levels of arsenic, barium
and other contaminants. And in June, 2012 the New York department of Environmental Conservation (DEC) secretly allowed fracking
industry lobbyists to help draft the state's proposed fracking legislation, watering it down in the interest of industry profits.
This criminal collusion demands a broad-based movement of education, protest and civil disobedience to put pressure on the
government to ban fracking and invest in a safe and renewable energy infrastructure. References & external links: http://waterdefense.org http://foodandwaterwatch.org http://catskillcitizens.org http://gaslandthemovie.com
democracynow.org - The Academy Award-nominated filmmaker
Josh Fox was handcuffed and arrested Wednesday as he attempted to film a Congressional hearing on the controversial natural
gas drilling technique, known as fracking, which the Environmental Protection Agency recently reported caused water contamination
in Pavillion, Wyoming. Fox directed the award-winning film, "Gasland," which documents the impact of fracking to
communities across the United States, and is now working on a sequel. Fox says he was arrested after Republicans refused to
allow him to film because he did not have the proper credentials. "We wanted to report on what happened [at the hearing].
I was not interested in disrupting. It was not a protest action," says Fox. "I was simply trying to do my job as
a journalist and go in there and show to the American people what was transpiring in that hearing, so that down the line -
as we know there will be a lot of challenges mounted to that [Pavillion, Wyoming] EPA report, and frankly to the people in
Pavillion who have been sticking up for themselves and demanding an investigation into the groundwater contamination - to
make sure that people could view that in a larger forum than usually happens."

Milk Is Poison:Thats Why I Don't Drink It
Read Robert Cohen's book Milk The Deadly Poison Available at Amazon.com
or other major bookstores.
About the Author Robert Cohen performed research
in the 1970's on the hormonal effects on the brain and behavior. Twenty-five years later, this father of three became concerned
about the most controversial drug approval in FDA history, the genetically engineered hormone that is now in our milk supply.
Along the way, Cohen discovered that milk is implicated in causing breast cancer, osteoporosis, heart disease, and chronic
childhood illnesses. Cohen's skills as a researcher, and his passion for the safety of his family, led to his single-minded
pursuit to expose the truth about milk. Based on his exhaustive and comprehensive research over the past six years, Cohen
predicted the Mad Cow Disease outbreak. His dogged determination has set the American dairy industry on its ear. To insure
that all citizens of the world learn the truth, Cohen founded and is executive director of America's Dairy Education Board,
a group of nationally prominent doctors dedicated to dispelling the myth that milk is nature's perfect food. ===
This is a 1998 Hard Copy Special on MILK. What the government doesn't want you to
know about milk. Don't drink milk, we know it contains fat and cholesterol but did you know it contains the protein CASEIN
(which is basically a glue which leads to a lot of mucous build up and other health problems like asthma and congestion),
milk also contains.. powerful growth hormones, viruses, a host of deadly chemical and biological bacterial agents, bovine
proteins that cause allergies, insecticides, antibiotics, all this can trigger the growth of cancer and contributes to today's
problem of obese children (ever notice why young girls breasts develop faster?). Cow's milk is the number one allergic food
in this country. It has been well documented as a cause in diarrhea, cramps, bloating, gas, gastrointestinal bleeding, iron-deficiency
anemia, skin rashes, atherosclerosis, and acne. It is the primary cause of recurrent ear infections in children. It has also
been linked to insulin dependent diabetes, rheumatoid arthritis, infertility, and leukemia. Milk and refined sugar make two
of the largest contributions to food induced ill health in our country.
From the creators of A Noble Lie: Oklahoma
City 1995, reveals that much of what we believe to be truth is actually deliberate deception.
The global elites are systematically implanting lies into our consciousness to erect a "tyranny over the minds of men." This film exposes the mind control
methods being used to turn our once vibrant society into a land of obedient sheeple.
Are we controlled? To what extent and by whom?
What does it mean for humanity's future?
On Conspiracy Theory with Jesse Ventura, the Governor and his team investigate the infamous
Brain Invaders project. In the decades since WWII, thousands of Americans have come forward, claiming the government has been
experimenting with mind control and brainwashing techniques. But one thing remains unclear: why?
U.S. Military Trains for Martial law in
Shock investigation: Pentagon accelerates plan
to confiscate guns, prosecute US conservatives. The Federal government has been in a big hurry to build a 300 acre city
in just 2 years at an expense of $96 million to train the military "for problems we don't even know we have yet."
If you've been following InfoWars, you've seen us document over and over again what they're training for with a detailed American
city like this - martial law, here at home. http://www.infowars.com/breaking-us-a...
Unlike the urban training centers we've seen before where the buildings
are just empty concrete block structures or even merely plywood facades, this town is very detailed with glass windows, handicap
parking signs, speed limit signs, logos on the subway that match the DC metro and a Christian - not a mosque. They've made
it clear in manual after manual, scenario after scenario that they perceive the enemy as gun owners, limited government conservatives
and libertarians and Christians. We recount some of the recent examples in the video.
Unless you've been living under a rock for the past fifty years, you're
aware of the many hypotheses that the assassination of President John F. Kennedy was not done by one man. Whether you've read
one or a dozen of the books on this topic, there's no way to fully grasp the depth of this conspiracy. For the first
time ever, New York Times bestselling authors Jesse Ventura and Dick Russell have teamed up with some of the most respected
and influential assassination researchers to put together the ultimate compendium that covers every angle-from the plot to
the murder-of JFK. They Killed Our President will not only discuss the most famous of theories, but will also bring to light
new and recently discovered information, which together shows that the United States government not only was behind this egregious
plot, but took every step to make sure that the truth would not come out.
With 2013 marking the fiftieth anniversary of JFK's assassination, this is the perfect time for They Killed
Our President to be available to readers. The research and information in this book are unprecedented, and there's nobody
better to bring this to everyone's attention than the former governor of Minnesota and US Navy SEAL, Jesse Ventura.
Of Water Taps May Contain Bacteria That Causes Legionnaires' Disease
philadelphia.cbslocal.com February 22, 2014 The data is scary: Nearly half of water faucets sampled across the United States tested positive
for the bacteria that causes Legionnaires' disease. While the study was small - researchers only sampled 67 public and
private water sources such as kitchen sinks and drinking fountains - it's the first one to chart the presence of the potentially
deadly bacteria in water taps. According to the EPA, the organization that conducted the research, 32 taps contained
the bacteria, and 11 of those contained it in multiple samples.
The fluoride in your toothpaste
and water supply is a toxic poison
Fluoride's Deadly Secret
Dr. Russell Blaylock M.D. is a retired neurosurgeon
and author whose trailblazing research has tirelessly documented the fact that there is an epidemic of neurological disorders
in the western world which are directly connected to toxins in our environment, and how this relates to the larger global
eugenics program behind population reduction. In this fascinating interview, Blaylock reveals how depopulation programs forged
by the Rockefeller foundation in association with the Nazis were the basis of modern day incarnations of eugenics like fluoride
poisoning and vaccinations.(To watch video click picture left)
Fluoride ShieldTM, an Infowars Life exclusive blend of key herbs and ingredients specifically infused within the
formula to help support the elimination of toxic forms of fluoride and other dangerous compounds like mercury, chlorine, and
bromine from within the body.
Infowars has been fighting to remove forms of fluoride from the water supply, with much support from around the world. There
have been victories in counties around the United States, and even the removal of sodium fluoride as far away as Germany,
the Netherlands, and other nations.
while we may not be able to remove toxic forms of fluoride from the global water supply just yet, we can actively make the
decision to help remove it from our bodies. You may even have a water filter at home to help remove toxic substances from
the water, but you may not yet actively be working to help remove these toxic substances from your body.

Following the nomination of Edward Snowden for a Nobel
Peace Prize by two Norwegian politicians, Infowars is launching a campaign to award the whistleblower with the honor for his
courageous role in exposing mass surveillance and rampant government corruption. Arguing that Snowden had "contributed
to a more stable and peaceful world order, "Baard Vegar Solhjell and Snorre Valen submitted Snowden's name to be considered
for the award, adding that, "His actions have in effect led to the reintroduction of trust and transparency as a leading
principle in global security policies." Hundreds of nominations are expected to be made for the prestigious award,
with members of any national assembly being allowed to suggest candidates. The final list will be decided on March 4 and the
winner will be announced on October 10.
