World Movement To Divest From Fossil Fuels 
Institutions; immediately freeze any new investment in fossil fuel companies, and divest from direct ownership and any co-mingled funds that include fossil fuel public equities and corporate bonds within 5 years.

Educational and religious institutions, city and state governments, and other institutions that serve the public good should divest from fossil fuels. 200 publicly-traded companies hold the vast majority of listed coal, oil and gas reserves. Those are the companies, to divest from. (See link above, for more info).

US domestic gas production is on the rise because of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, a controversial method of extracting natural gas from shale rock by pumping millions of gallons of water mixed with sand and chemicals underground at high pressure.

Environmentalists say this gas boon threatens water supplies and pollutes air.

Now, as fracking expands around the world, so does growing resistance.

This film focuses on three countries on the new fracking front-line: South Africa, Poland, and the UK.
