As the right is want to do, when something comes out this damaging to their cause, they need to find as many people who are willing to pretend to be experts and say whatever is needed to discredit the film in the eyes of the general public.
In our current culture of greed, and because the right pays so well(if you do what they tell you to), there is no shortage of options to repeat the cycle for this topic. The latest is Ann McElhinney. Remember her name as you will hear it again and again from our "friends" on the right as the rush to give Gogebic Taconite everything they ask for!
She and her film will be paraded around Wisconsin, quoted and misquoted on the Assembly floor and a bill giving everything the Gogebic Taconite asks for will be passed. Then Ann and her crew will collect their money and go home, some beautiful areas of Northern WI will be devastated, tourist dollars will dry up, the mining company will get what they can and leave and the republicans will blame the democrats for the devastation.
Lather, Rinse, Repeat!

It means that you’re really, really, really, really, really, really lucky, because you have loads and loads of oil and natural gas.”
Talk about winning the lottery lucky, who wouldnt want to be able to drink that on a daily basis!
