Shameful Van Sant
Portland is understandably proud that top Hollywood
director Gus Van Sant calls the Rose City home.
But Van Sant should be ashamed of his latest movie, which hits theaters
tonight. It’s original script called for
star Matt Damon, representing the evil energy companies that heat our homes and
power our cars, to lie to simple farmers and buy their land for evil fracking
to produce natural gas. The main lie is
that fracking is destructive, dangerous and even deadly. But there’s a problem with that. the outgoing director of the EPA under
President Obama recently had to admit to congress, quote, “there are no proven
cases where fracking has affected water”.
And it turns out that some of the environmental groups have played fast
and loose with the truth. And the truth
is that natural gas has fallen dramatically in price, which benefits electric
production and industry and your ability to live in a house warmed by gas. So
they quickly rewrote the movie…Damon is still a bad guy…and the environmental
crusader in the movie turns out to be an evil energy company shill. If you are a greenie who likes tree hugging
propaganda…you’re gonna love it.
