Who Would Have Thought in the Real Promised Land

A regular reader of this blog sent me a link to this insight: Arabs funding anti-fracking film!
Who would have thought that the oil-rich Arabs would want to constrain our ability to be dependent on them for our fossil fuels?
A new film starring Matt Damon presents American oil and natural gas producers as money-grubbing villains purportedly poisoning rural American towns. It is therefore of particular note that it is financed in part by the royal family of the oil-rich United Arab Emirates. [Emphasis added]
The creators of Promised Land have gone to absurd lengths to vilify oil and gas companies, as Scribe’s Michael Sandoval noted Wednesday. Since recent events have demonstrated the relative environmental soundness of hydraulic fracturing – a technique for extracting oil and gas from shale formations – Promised Land’s script has been altered to make doom-saying environmentalists the tools of oil companies attempting to discredit legitimate “fracking” concerns.
You can read the whole story HERE. I will not be viewing the Promised Land, I hope others will do the same. Why should we support the Arabs and their goal of keeping us on their fossil fuel tit, by encouraging US citizens to demand our own government stop “fracking” in America.
