The shale gas industry-commissioned white
, *The Global Anti-Fracking Movement: What it Wants, How it Operates and
What’s Next*, makes for some very interesting reading.

It was produced late last year by Control Risks, an “independent, global
risk consultancy specialising in helping organisations manage political,
integrity and security risks in complex and hostile environments”.

The white paper focuses on shale gas, but it also discusses coal seam gas.
Shale gas is what features in the film *Gasland* by Josh Fox, which details
the destructive effects of “fracking” on communities in the US.
