Gasland Part II Called Out Again For Deceptive Tactics

From The American Interest:
As long as the vertical bore is correctly cased with cement, hydrocarbons and fracking fluid won’t have a chance to leak into groundwater.
Gasland Part II devotes some special attention to these cement casings, and Fox claims that 35 percent of the world’s wells are leaking. But that doesn’t stand up to scrutiny, as one contributor to the left-leaning blog Daily Kos points out (that same contributor has also twice debunked Fox’s claim that the oil and gas industries are exempt from the Clean Air Water acts). A little over an hour into the film, Fox shows a graph purporting to illustrate the dramatic increase of casings failures over time, but in what appears to be a case of willful deceit, neglects to show viewers the caption to that graph; the scary red lines don’t show the failures of casings.
