Thank You and two things we need you to do

Dear Backers

We're writing to you today for few reasons. First, we want to thank you again for your amazing support that continually allow us to develop a documentary that will make a huge difference in the lives of people across US and the globe.

Second, this film must remain independent from the Oil and Gas industry. Therefore, if you are a senior executive of an Oil and Gas company, we must ask you to cancel your pledge immediately. We appreciate your cooperation.

Third, to everyone else. We expect the amount we've raised so far to drop because of the above cancellations. If you are able to, please increase your pledge to make up the shortfall and send the link to our page to friends who you think would like to support our project. Here is just some of the coverage we garnered for this true story about fracking for natural gas:

Thank you again for helping us break the wall of misinformation and get the truth out there. FrackNation will be a film made of true stories, not scare stories.

      shucks, 'progresSive'...

      BTW, and after reading several comments, I want to state that I consider myself as "left-leaning" and "liberal" (so do my friends). Now, here in Europe, 'left' is not a four-letter word, it used to mean that we cared for the poor and that we were, huh... progressive. Cheap energy would do good to the poor, ain't it so? Just read Spiked!, that's a good start, even though I'm not 100% with them... But our European left has been hijacked by the 'Greens', who are everything but 'progresive'.
      Bear with me if I made some grammatical or speliling mistakes, but English is not my mother tongue.

      Sorry, not "once", but "ones"... I guess you've figured it out!

      A very good and apposite move. Now, all Gas executives are not delighted with US fracking, just consider Gazprom's CEO! Even Big Oil interests are not happy and neither are Big Coal's... Still, especially in the wake of Heartland, you do well.
      Not being a man of infinite wealth, I expect you to tell us all how much setback you incur from this fine decision.
      Keep up with your good work and rest assured that I have transmitted your project to all my European readers (alas, not an overwhelming bunch but at least I'm happy to say that I've convinced a few once...).
      Cheers!
