“Dear Mr. President” is a new and revealing documentary about the full cost of fracking – and the corporate and political determination to do it anyway.
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.

I have not yet seen this film, but fellow-blogger Robert A. Vella has. Please read his eye-opening review:
By Robert A. Vella… Last night, Viceland aired the anti-fracking documentary “Dear President Obama” – written and directed by Jon Bowermaster and narrated by Mark Ruffalo. Although I’ve been closely following the use of hydraulic fracturing technology to produce oil and natural gas domestically in the U.S., the revelations presented in this extraordinary film were nevertheless quite shocking.
