The front for this one is an undercover journalist from Project Veritas posing as "Muhammad,” a member of a Middle Eastern oil family, who is willing to pay $9 million to American filmmakers to fund an anti-fracking movie.
O’Keefe entraps actor Ed Begley Jr., actress Mariel Hemingway, and director Josh Tickell (Sundance Film Festival Winner and director of environmental message movies Fuel, The Big Fix, and PUMP), who agree to the film while promising to hide the source of the funds.
He even tells the group that "if Washington, D.C., continues fracking, America will be energy-efficient, and then they won't need my oil anymore."
Yes, these actors would rather have coal and oil than natural gas, which has proven to be much cleaner and is the largest reason who American CO2 emissions have plummeted back to early 1990s levels.
