Fractured: How Language Deceives Us About Energy

How can we have a rational discussion about the most important thing in our lives—energy – when virtually every word, term and phrase used in describing energy production and consumption is wrong?

Journalist turned filmmaker, Mark Mathis, explains why common terms such as "fossil fuel," "alternative energy," "clean energy," "mother nature" and "fracking" are highly misleading. These incorrect terms deceive the public about the essential nature of oil, gas, coal and nuclear power and cause people to believe in expensive, dangerous illusions. In addition to explaining why common energy terms are inaccurate, Mathis proposes a better way to think and talk about the fuels that power our lives.
