"My thanks to t- mystery for their support. It's january two thousand ten park city utah. It's the last night sundance film festival when the jury hands out. Its prizes for the year's best films in the audience at eccles theater josh fox a thirty seven year old first time director nervously adjusts cap and fiqh round glasses. He's one of the nominees. He watches is a member of the jury. Strides to the stage. All right This next film is one of the most powerful and infuriating films i've ever seen. Please join me. In congratulating the winner of the special jury prize for documentary. Gaslan fox can hardly believe it when he hears the name of this film dazed. He makes his way to the stage. Is a clip from gasoline. Plays on a giant screen. Six states have documented over one thousand incidents of groundwater contamination levels. It has says when it comes out. I won't drink. They can drill whether we like it or not. Fox shakes presenters hand and steps in front of the microphone. This isn't a movie i wanted to make. It's a movie i had to make. And the fight's not over. If you live in new york please call your legislatures and urge them to ban fracking. What happened in pennsylvania doesn't have to happen there. Thanks fox decided to make gaslan after he was offered one hundred thousand dollars for drilling rights to his family's land in pennsylvania he's blown away by the response to it. It's nominated for an oscar picked up by. Hbo and makes fox. An anti fracking. Celebrity in the films most striking seen a colorado man holds a lighter up to his kitchen faucet and turns on the tap the water explodes into a ball of fire because it's full of methane caused. He believes by nearby fracking. Thanks to gas land and other negative media attention. Fracking becomes a dirty word in households across america but many in the energy industry are caught. Totally off guard by the backlash. It's september two thousand eleven. Aubrey mcclendon is attending and oil and gas conference in philadelphia. He and a handful of other executives watch out the window of the convention center lobby as a crowd gathers around the entrance chanting and waving signs that say things ban fracking now and hey gas companies frac you from inside the convention center. Mcclendon shakes his head. These people just carry on fracking. kills fracking. poisons most of the people out. There couldn't even tell you. What fracking is or that. We've been doing it for decades. A fracking so bad. Where's the mushroom cloud. Where are the three legged dogs running around one young executive from arrival company shifts on his feet. I mean just to play devil's advocate. There have been accidents. Mcclendon gives him a withering. Stare by all means. Play devil's advocate. The young executive nervously consults. His notes five months ago a well exploded in pennsylvania one of yours on spew thousands of gallons of fracking fluid into fields and a creek of seven families had to be evacuated in two thousand nine. The pennsylvania department of environmental protection shut down several wells and domestic after eight thousand gallons of fracking fluid leaked into the wetlands two thousand eight colorado reported forty eight incidents of water contamination in texas six counties with gas drilling reported a twenty five percent asthma rate for children over three times. Okay okay who the hell side are you on the young executive shrugs mistakes cost money. Number of companies fad to pay expensive settlements. Mcclendon is about to respond one another executive steps in and of start banning fracking. We don't make any money at all. This is becoming more than a nuisance. We need to go on the offensive mcclendon and the other executives look out the window at the protesters pondering their next move. What are we want. When do we want it. A few months later at another energy conference in houston presenter stands at the front of a drab conference room clicking through powerpoint presentation behind her is a slide with a no smoking symbol on it. A group of natural gas executive stare back at her. There are two ways to think about the challenges. You're facing as an industry. The first is that it's a pr problem similar to the problem. Tobacco companies. Face some people who smoke get cancer. Some wells fail. The fact of the matter is if you smoke you increase your odds of dying of cancer and if you live on a shale field you increase the odds that your water is going to be contaminated. It's just the truth. So you can try to convince people that fracking harmless you can make a mascot like terry. The frasca soroush terry is an actual character in coloring book. That one company distributed around pennsylvania in an attempt to convince children. That fracking is cool. But that only goes so far there protesters screaming outside this hotel right. This second terry. The practice isn't going to convince them. The presenter advances to slide on the screen is a photo of an olive green book with a white band across the title. Reads the us army marine corps counterinsurgency field manual. So here's the other way to think about your problem. Now you might think this sounds extreme. But this is what you need a counterinsurgency. You can download this manual off the internet. I recommend you do that. You'll learn that it's not about convincing the die hard to change their minds. But you can neutralize them by teaching the people who aren't paying attention. That fracking is too complicated for them to pick a side. They'll feel like they can't weigh in. They won't call there legislatures to demand a fracking ban. Because they just don't know if it's good or bad that's your goal one executive at the front of the room racist hand at our company. We've hired a bunch of vets from iraq and afghanistan specifically once siab's experience psychological operations. They have exactly the experience you're talking about. They know about effective propaganda working with local governments. It's paying off for us. The presenter nods that's a great strategy the other execs in the room eagerly take notes the fr- activists as the anti fracking. Protesters are known or upping their game. Some powerful allies in the media and the government the energy company executives. No they need to strike back and with new york. State still debating its policies on fracking. The stage is set for a showdown. It's may twenty twelve. Vera scroggins pushes open the library door in sydney new york. A small town west of albany scroggins is a retired. Schoolteacher turned fr- activists from pennsylvania here to support new yorkers in their states fight. The moratorium against fracking is still in place. But since it's only an executive order it can be overturned at any moment. Scroggins faces the type of crowd. She's used to these events about fifty people mostly men mostly retired. Now is the time to kick up as much of a fuss possible. Hold protests write letters to the editor call your representatives every day. Go to county board meetings. Go to albany if you can't and get your friends and family involved to a man with a thick beard raises his hand. Yes you in front a lot of my friends. Think fracking is a necessary evil. The natural gas is better than coal. What do you suggest i say to them. Scroggins nods first of all. Let's dispense with this myth. That natural gas is some magical fuel that will solve our climate crisis. It does release less co.

"I'm not so this happened yesterday. Do you remember. I don't know if you've ever heard of this name before. Harvard Wind Stir. That is some good news. there's some really good news out of that We the last time we checked it. On Mr Harvey Weinstein having his Genita- describe the huddle Lord of Regular Avenue this Genitalia was described in a court of Record. And also you get to see a little tiny naked picture of him that courtroom a very give this core room artists like the Pulitzer Prize or something because to be a courtroom artist. I can't imagine that. That's a very thrilling job. I do think it would be cool but you have to be like a quarter horse and see jurors being handed around a picture. Harvey Weinstein's naked body how they got the the actual make it body. Yeah I saw a picture of because this gusting typically speaking if you're being charged for something like that and a lot of people have detailed descriptions of your body and after that have pictures of your body taken. Yeah 'cause it's like Oh if it's if their third. The descriptions are wrong naked. Yeah Which the to bog. No one should ever be in that situation because no one should act in such a way where they have to defend themselves against that. Harvey Weinstein's one sees a monster. He is a monster. If your remarks as you see people getting past little pictures of his naked body yesterday like Nasr my moment after perfectly commit this to memory and committed to paper and they really did it. Boulevard Mr Weinstein. I know what happened? How man thank you for asking him and keeping up the Chirad. I am in control anything. he was found guilty on two counts criminal. Sexual Act in the first degree and rape and the third degree I know that I was reading a tweet today where someone shared that story. I was on the bus today and sell women look at her phone and audibly say finally and I knew what she was reading. I this is. This is amazing. Great because it shows that the mother how powerful you are how much money you get. It's not all a shield from the horrible horrible things you do yes. It's only a shield four decades. Look I'm not saying that the shields get worn down. Yeah and it's it's not the I feel like I don't WanNa make it seem like what I'm saying is that it was a shield for decades. Because that's just the way it is. I feel like it was a shield for decades because unfortunately he existed in a time when Hollywood was Gaslan lab. Shit like this to happen. And now we are entering into a new phase of humanity where we are not as forgiving of stuff like this and he got caught in it and we were lucky enough that he didn't die before it happened exactly because not now like there's precedence. Legal Wise Yeah and also needs be made an example of which is great. Because now it's like you can't get off scot-free anymore. No more food passes just because you own production company and a lot of ways like attractive. Women are coming to your office. We've tried to pitch movies like this was a thing that nobody should ever do. Yes and so. I'm glad that it's finally starting to come to end. But nothing will change until Bryan singer. His right next to Harvey Weinstein in the Sing Prison. Exchanging stories about their weird penises. I feel like there is. There's a the Harvey Weinstein thing to me is extremely important because we saw the bill cosby thing happened. Yeah thank God I once again. Thank God that Bill Cosby did not die before he would. Yes because I feel like the best thing that can happen. These people could be alive to be punished. Because I don't know I just found guilty along the times when somebody dies they just dropped court cases. And it's like well. Don't we want to find the truth? And it's like well if they're dead we can't punish them. And that's like a whole thing. I mean here's the here's you end up with a what. I like to go. Michael Jackson situation where there's nebulous nature. What actually if you believe the victims which you should that he is a monster. Like a world-class Monster. His music is still on the radio with great. Regularity is still a huge part of culture would have been much better if he were alive to see something like that. Come to fruition because we get to see his living memory include the punishment. But if someone's film strip ends and then the truth comes out later than like that. The colors their life but their life is done and it has a minimal impact to society. So I I appreciate the Harvey Weinstein got to be punished while he was alive for our longer. He's going to be alive but also feel like it's important step in the metoo movement because this is really when we get to see the first big big fish get punished. We've seen it through to the end. And then hopefully after this like fireworks one goes and then they all go to see a bunch of other things like this. I don't know that that's going to be the case. This is also pretty big milestone because this is one of the most notable ones to enter the official like court and not just the court of public opinion opinion exactly and this is the way it should be done like carry out justice. Find out you know. Let him stand before trials peers and let him be rate of Wade guilty or innocent in the court of law. Because I mean that's just how that's how justice works right. I mean sometimes. Sometimes the court of law gets around But I do yeah true and the girl does get off but the thing is it's the only system we've really got. I know because One walking in Phoenix He's not cancelled or anything but he. During his speech he was speaking out against cancel. Cold Canseco culture. I do feel like cancel. Culture is is it has problems so I feel like if at all possible if we can take things through legal term channels. That's great it's expensive and lengthy and traumatic and I wish that it didn't have to be all of those things but to see something him to a rightful end like this. It is very satisfying. I saw a take on twitter. Apparently Weinstein's lawyers have reported to the press that he has had an elevated heart rate and shortness of breath. Ever since the verdict and somebody. I can't remember who she was took him down on twitter saying yes. That's called a panic attack and victims such as yours experienced them for years after the trauma they witness and then she was like trying to focus on one one of these each things like something. You can see something he could talk. Nico smells good taste and something you can hear. And the last line of the tweet was for the tasting. It could be justice. Incredible and grow. I would like to say I many sympathies for elevated heart rate shortness of breath who can Hopefully his heart rate goes down because he no longer breeds straight to the leader to the electric chair. Chick chick boo well not exist. Wherever he's going. I also don't believe in the death penalty but you know what let's make selects appears thing he. I mean realistically in this one case he is like why eighty something. I have no idea all the reason these in the the final. He's stretching his life. Let me say something. Let me be Frank. Will he is. He's the kind of old fat guy where he could be forty five or he could be nine to route or you look bad no matter what so I guess. Let me phrase. He seems to be toward the end of his life. He had been doing this for decades. Yes and the justice system and and the I guess the and by extension. The prison system exists on the belief. That anybody can be rehabilitated. But if you are toward the end of your life and you've been doing crimes for decades and you enter the courtroom with an increasingly comedic form of Walker transportation to get sympathy points. Do we actually in this is this is. This is a fine line. Believe he could be rehabilitated. I mean that's the tough thing to say because the the argument for the death penalty is the argument that there is there are people for whom rehabilitation will never be effective for. They can never be rehabilitated. I don't think that's true. I I like to believe that anyone can be rehabilitated. And even if not that then then. Killing people is not the way to go Also he's sixty seven years old so he's got a little while left. Bill cosby though. It becomes tricky because if you make the verdict that somebody cannot be rehabilitated. You start the awful conversation of where do you draw the line in now and I guess no human wants to have that conversation so I guess we'll just put them in prison hopefully for a really long time and when he gets out he's too enfeebled to actually keep doing his weird sex crimes. I just read to you. The first line of Harvey Weinstein Means Weinstein absolutely his wikipedia as of today Harvey Weinstein born March. Nineteenth nineteen fifty. Two is an American film producer and convicted rate. That's amazing very nice. Yeah I love one of the good things about conviction that we can. We no longer have to say alleged. Yeah we can Harvey Weinstein Film Producer and convicted rapist of finally those things are equivalent Bill Cosby says the same thing. Stand up comedian actor convicted sex offender. It's great that should say rapists it should I don't know I haven't read Cosby's but I know that a convicted sex offender gotcha Good great big old good. Let's keep doing a keep. Keep raking that muck up and getting them out. Get OUT GET OUT. Get them out. Pull those sort of imprisoned forever. Why who's is leading. Kevin Spacey Advocate Camera. Every Christmas. I don't know Kevin Spacey Prison. Brian Singer Ultra prison. What's really weird? Is that Kevin? Spacey was facing two different lawsuits and both victims and those lawsuits have died. Now crazy coincidence weird querying. Zev Razi coincidence unbelievable. Doesn't he know how so cards ended? Apparently not there's a little sequel. Let me be frank. Gross very gross.
