Description
Filmmakers and journalists have been working on the film for nearly three years, filming in more than twenty states and conducting more than 120 interviews. Narrated by actor and activist Mark Ruffalo, the film is a direct appeal to President Obama as he shapes his environmental legacy, but it is also a very loud shout-out to every elected official in the country to carefully consider the growing evidence that proves that leaving fossil fuels in the ground is the only reasonable energy path forward. The film is written and directed by Jon Bowermaster, whose Oceans 8 Films have produced a dozen films focused on a variety of environmental fights/issues...Since 2008, under President Obama's watch, the drilling and fracking industries have boomed across the United States. Today more than twenty million people live within a mile of at least one oil or gas well. Pro-drillers argued this rush would create a newfound "energy independence"in the U.S. In fact, as oil and gas prices have plummeted in the past year forcing industry to shut down rigs and lay off workers, all the boom did was slow progress towards investing in new renewable energy sources. ..The film takes a cross-country look at drilling, highlighting its variety of contaminations, the stories of its victims, the false promise of an economic boom, with a focus on clean energy solutions that would allow us to proceed towards a future that does not rely on yet another dirty fossil fuel extraction process. ..The impacts of this boom have affected every socio-economic class, every race, creed and culture, urban, suburban and rural. Interviews with scientists, economists, health professionals, geologists and whistle-blowers provide the core information we think will convince the President and those that will follow - and every elected official -- to join the "anti-drilling"majority growing across the United States and call for fossil fuels to be left where they belong, in the ground.
