But did you know that some of the films had alternative storylines – all related to fracking? They actually didn’t, but let’s take a peek at what Hollywood could have done.

A movie about the five emotions a fracktivist would go through if she ever graduated college…
Anger – She could have changed the world by being an engineer, and also made more than $30 per hour.

Fear – After mandating 100% renewable energy, the feeling just before the energy bill comes each month.
Joy – Accepting that more Americans support fracking than oppose it, and it’s okay to embrace affordable energy.
An entire generation, fooled by a celebrity fracktivist regime that controls the galaxy, learns of the pro-fracking rebellion and the benefits of cheap energy.
A scientist gets left behind on Mars. Luckily, he survives thanks to rocket fuel and other fossil fuel byproducts. (Okay, that’s not an alternate ending at all!)
