VIDEO: Voices from the Gas Fields | The film the government does NOT want you to see

This is the film the UK & Australian Governments do NOT want you to see! Documenting the accounts of families living with the hydrocarbon industry as a neighbour, this hour long documentary is shocking, as it reveals the day to day pollution these people live with – pollution of water, air, light and sound, some of the the basic human requirements needed to survive. The blind eye that the authorities and the hydrocarbon industry turn to these families living conditions, and the complete disregard to the environmental damage done to the bush by this, is truly disgraceful.

I have not seen another film like it, telling us, warning us how really dreadful life is living amongst the gas wells. I have a huge respect for the families in Australia that held onto their land and shared their stories with us. It was especially moving when Brian Monk speaks directly to the audience near the end of the video, very powerful indeed – we would be very wise to listen and act accordingly.

This film should be distributed and shown as widely as possible so we can learn and act. Full credit to Ian R Crane and his colleagues for turning around this moving, informative, high quality film in less than four months since his return from Australia. Thank you Ian and the families from Australia for the absolutely invaluable insight this film gives.

We need to take heed of the “Voices from the Gasfields” so these honourable families have not stayed loyal to their lands in vain

Crews Battle Fire at Natural Gas Well Pad

Calls came into the 7 newsroom just after 10 o’clock Saturday morning, on what we thought may have been a natural gas well pad fire. Once we arrived on scene we were told that wasn’t how the fire started. Smoke from the fire could be seen for miles. 

We quickly learned that we couldn’t get close to the sight, because the Monroe County Sheriff’s Office and Ohio State Highway Patrol evacuated residents who live on Long Ridge Road. About 20-25 homes were evacuated.
