That of course is a technique used to extract natural gas from the ground right here in the United States such did you believe the attacks launched in that movie turns out.
Parts of it were funded by Middle Eastern country that wants to keep America dependence on foreign -- home and documentary filmmaker confronted Matt Damon with the facts watch that.
They didn't -- and without the people.
Or -- the Middle Eastern government and -- out.

Financed his film in part I tell you saw below go.
Yet but that -- -- in that interview he said he's average user and he went to all -- finance meetings.
I mean there's one thing -- Parton and Hollywood in the script and that's the money.
And -- and any bully anybody can write a script anybody can can start moving but getting the money is the real -- in Hollywood you're right.
But what else is controversial here was that question that our viewers just saw came from.
You're videotape but when it.

It was a limb and guess what happened I did that and -- done that and Apple Store here and so apple recorded it and sent free on my chains.

What would light up.
Going back to the 1930s decades before they started -- there three times in America called burning spring -- avenues for Americans you could like your water in America for centuries long before -- -- -- a lot of gas that in their summits in the water some looks in the rock.
It's all over the place so that that was a big mess that was of some big lie accident that fracking causes you wanted to go on fire not why we're making our documentary.

And not one proven kiss of polluting water.
That -- -- no scientific peer review proof that it ever polluted water anywhere in America.
Yes it brings economic benefits the economic benefits are irrelevant if it's gonna promised that -- water.

Conservatives Republicans Democrats all to -- -- but the water and I'm.
