All in one week - Ireland considers total ban on Fracking as Counties and municipalities pass local bans. The EPA delays finalizing it's report linking 'fracking' to water pollution. The film “Frack Nation” previews in New York 2 days before the Albany Rally.
I'm certain John Lennon was there – Thank you Sean, Yoko, everyone. Imagine There's No Fracking!
In a Jan 11 2013 review/promo of the film Frack Nation, Irish filmmakers Ann McElhinney and Phelim McAleer, spoke of telling the truth about America's frac job. Ann and Phelim are behind the 2008 documentary “Not Evil Just Wrong,” which challenged Al Gore’s “An Inconvenient Truth”.

In other news this week, Ireland is considering a total ban on ‘fracking’? (January 10, 2013)
"Concern had been raised in Co Clare over the past few months that the practice could be employed in the county as feasibility studies are carried out. Last night members of the public and campaigners attended Clare County Council’s monthly meeting in Ennis to hear a presentation by Dr Aedin McLoughlin, who has campaigned against fracking in counties Leitrim and Roscommon."

"Council members unanimously supported a motion to write to the Minister for Communications, Energy and Natural Resources seeking a total ban on fracking in Ireland. Councillors also supported a second motion from Green Party councillor Brian Meaney that the County Development Plan would be amended to ban fracking in Clare."

Will "Frack Nation" make the Oscars? On Jan 22, 2013, the anticipated response to Josh Fox’s “Gasland” will be shown online. It claims to reclaim the debate, by weaving together science and the “story of ordinary citizens impacted by the campaign against natural gas - being spearheaded by wealthy NIMBYs”.

Subscription to AXS TV required for viewing Frack Nation.

The film, Frack nation, which pre-viewed on Monday, January 7, 2013 at the Chelsea in New York, is produced by Ann and Phelim Media LLC, located in Marina Del Ray, CA.

These are the same folks who challenged Josh Fox (Gasland) on factual disclosure,

And as a full rebuttal, In June 2012, Josh made a short film:
“The Sky Is Pink” Newest film by Josh Fox, June 22, 2012 18 min

The film effort by Josh Fox, “The Sky Is Pink”, is both educational and fast paced. It has an amazing amount of 'insider' substantiating evidence (in-house documents) of the industry, film footage, and interviews with top scientists, ex-industry leaders, common rural Americans, and big city mayors, State Governors, citizens.

And in Washington, on Friday evening, January 11, 2013 the EPA delayed finalizing it's report linking 'fracking' to water pollution

“The U.S. government is delaying for 8 months a comment period on a report that offered the first evidence in decades that 'fracking' for natural gas contaminates water supplies. The stall, the third on the 2011 draft report on water in Wyoming, is the latest example of the federal government delaying conclusions on whether hydraulic fracturing, or fracking can lead to pollution in water supplies.”
