How ‘natural’ is liquified ‘natural’ gas? The film Fracking the Peace (35 min) tells how fracking for ‘natural’ gas has negatively impacted the lives of people living on Treaty 8 territory in Northeastern BC. The Peace River region has been ravaged by more than 25,000 fracking wells threatening livelihoods, physical and mental health, rich agricultural land and the very water that sustains life. Fracking is currently responsible for the majority of BC’s methane emissions which are 86 times more toxic for the atmosphere than CO2. Fracking the Peace paints a picture of how fracking development in BC has been allowed to skyrocket.
