  1. It is important that their is an educational film
    I know the war on waste has had a huge impact on the common family
    I’m wondering if there is more to the film
    If not I feel it needs to show more of the cause and effect of the process of fracking
    The leaks the waste product
    Health effects
    But great its out there thanks
