It's not worth it. The risks are not worth the reward. I knew that if I didn't act and if gas drilling occurred near my home and one of my children got sick I would never forgive myself".
As many Southlaker's school themselves up on the fracking process, this documentary has been proving popular at the local Blockbuster. It's called 'Gasland' and this is its most famous scene.
Many, many families and people started to realise oh my water's turning black, my water's bubbling, something smells funny, my kids are getting sick. They're all comparing information and then they discover low and behold that they can light their water on fire right out of the tap". Josh Fox is the Gasland guru. It's hard to overestimate the impact of his heartfelt, homespun yet very powerful documentary.
Josh Fox has become the anti-fracking pin up, an inspiration for those fighting big oil and a serious challenge to the industry. Oil and gas pushes people around. It's bullying, it's aggressive, it gets its way. It's about time we're done with that way of doing business, with the culture of that because it is literally toxic in every aspect.
It is toxic to the environment and it is toxic to our political process". Here in Texas they're used to big oil.
1919 › Kershaw, Elizabeth (p. 677) - Fold3.com
For generations oil and cattle have forged the formidable Texas character. And here, not far from Southlake, at the Fort Worth Stock Show and Rodeo the crowd loves their cowboys and the big oil operators that bring jobs and prosperity. God bless XTO thanks a bunch".

But the pace of the fracking frenzy makes a wild bucking bronco seem sedate. In just a few years, drilling rigs have sprouted up through the Texas suburbs like towering hills hoists - across from shopping centres, close to schools - otherwise residential neighbourhoods have become industrial zones. When the fracking starts, trucks gather round the well. The sand, water and chemical mix is pushed deep underground at extremely high pressure.
Escaping vapour drifts in the wind. I see a lot of injuries. I've seen somebody actually get blown all the way back from a blowout.
I've seen one guy die on a blow out". Dangerous, even deadly, but lucrative. Fracking is now underway in 34 states in the US. And urban cowboy Taylor Hinkle is just one of those cashing in on the new energy boom on a Fort Worth rig. Once you decide to do it, once you get into the full force of it you aint got no choice but to follow it around cause you don't know anything else.
When I was younger I always said it would never happen to me - once you get a taste of that money it's addictive". Taylor Hinkle is working on a drilling rig just a few miles from the Dallas Fort Worth Airport and just a stones' throw from new housing developments. If there was a problem on this location, say somebody like sparked lighter in the wrong place or you know a spark was discharged from a piece of equipment you know.
If this well was to blow up, who's to say that gas is not going to ignite underneath the ground and blow twenty different ones up around the airport".Peak oil: Meet the frackers
And that's the rub. There's a lot about what's happening under there that has people worried and has the oil companies on the defensive.
So there are lots of things that go into these standards that I think address a lot of the issues people have been raising". One of the issues is chemical injection.
The other issue is simply connecting the layers between these zones which are toxic to ground water, very far under the ground where you have gas, oil, volatile organic compounds, benzene, tylene, ethyl benzene - normally occurring radioactive material.
And what you've just done is you have created a connecting straw between layers that nature separated out millions of years ago with the ground water". The fracking process was invented by Halliburton, a company later run by Dick Cheney for some years before he became George W Bush's vice president. And you ask the industry do casings fail? And they say of course It has not bought harmony to Southlake, let's put it that way". In Southlake the fracking furore has provoked argument and insult.
If I can't have it you can't have it either. A lot of that is happening. It's not just the people in Southlake, Americans are just afraid of their shadows". The suburb is split between angry opponents and fervent supporters like, oddly enough, lifelong democrat Zena Rucker. And little by little as the yuppies, then the dot comers came into town, we used to say they get a little money in their pocket and they change".
Zena Rucker is one of the original land holders here. She considers herself a dedicated environmentalist and a conscientious conserver. I drive a Prius. I never take anything to the garbage. It either gets in the compost or it gets recycled". She owns 75 acres, pretty countryside that's worth a bomb on paper.
A while ago gas companies approached her with offers for the mineral rights on the property. The cheques were too big to resist even for a Prius driver. I cashed some of them already but the leases ran out so anyway this last one however they took back and decided they just weren't going to do it.
But her bonanza's hit a wall. The local council has now sided with the fracking opponents and imposed a moratorium on development. For the moment Gordon Aalund and his supporters have won out.
She's 4 years old and no one can tell me what the long term effects on things like hormone production and ovaries and what not You can't protect yourself from something you can't see and you can't smell".
But while suburbs battle with worrying new residents, the frackers are descending upon a vast swathe of North America and in one case almost an entire state - the remote, sweeping plains and rugged rural landscapes of North Dakota. It's pretty inhospitable country - particularly in the grip of a freezing winter when we arrive. Not so long ago North Dakota was struggling to keep its population but that as they say, is so yesterday.
This is where the work is. These roads are not made for this kind of traffic. The amount of trucks that are around here you could only explain it like flies around a cow shit. There are just trucks everywhere". Mike Keane's got the pedal to the metal and the icy road to the low grey horizon ahead might as well be paved with gold.
From the grocery stores to the parts stores to the hardware stores to the truck drivers, everybody is doing well. And if they tell you they're not doing well, they're either not very good business people or they are lying. It's a simple fact they're not up here for anything other than the almighty dollar".
Like millions before him, Mike Keane came to America from Ireland. In the 20 years he's been in the US he's been a fisherman, a farmer and a horse breeder - now he's a trucking magnate in the making - hauling water to the fracking rigs.
I'm doing real good. I now have 5 trucks, 5 trailers, all paid for. The harder you work the more you make".
