My guests last week were Joe Balyeat, AFP-MT State Director and Jessica Sena, Communications Adviser for Montana Petroleum Association.  Balyeat and Sena were on the last leg of an 8-city "Montana Energy Freedom Tour," screened FrackNation the night before and spoke about how Montanans can reclaim the Treasure State.

During the interview Balyeat and Sena covered:

Evidence supporting the safe use of fracking that even a former Obama EPA official admitted was accurate

The distortions perpetuated by the HBO documentary Gasland and it's impact on the property rights of landowners in Pennsylvania and elsewhere

  • The job creation and revenue potential of fracking in Montana
  • What are the risks, if any, associated with fracking
  • Why Vladimir Putin sides with environmentalists and opposes fracking
  • Can fracking lead to U.S. and Montana energy independence and security?
  • What are the impediments to fracking the Bakken and Three Forks Formation in Montana
  • What, if anything, can we do about it
