Oil and gas companies are drilling for trillions (That's right, trillions) of gallons of natural gas every day.
Adi E. Reich
An excellent exposure of fracking and the corporations that are using it at the expense of our water supply, our nations people and the natural beauty of this country.
Curtis Ludlow
We all need to do a better job of taking care of our dear earth.... GASLAND has touched me so I know I will never think of drilling in the same way.

When you watch Josh Fox's brilliant GASLAND, it's as if you're watching a nightmare scenario of what would happen if our lands were taken over by evil aliens, intent on sucking the earth dry, regardless of the consequences to the planet--and to us. This is no sci-fi thriller that could never happen in real life, however. Shockingly, it IS really happening and it's worse than you can imagine.

Very fortunately, for all of us, Josh Fox, brave soul that he is, ventured out into the heart of America and into the small towns of this country to actually speak to regular, law abiding, tax paying citizens who are now paying the ultimate price for "clean" gas drilling with permanent health effects, including brain damage, chronic respiratory conditions and many other serious conditions, too numerous to mention. Their land is worthless, their water undrinkable. The now famous scene where the tap water actually bursts into flame is just the tip of the iceburg. The epidemic of hydrofracking now taking place in America is worse than any disease we've ever encountered. It destroys our water, our air, our animals, our vegetation (including farm crops), our livestock, our health and our lives. This is Three Mile Island, Love Canal and Chernobyl--times fifty.

GASLAND should be shown in every elementary, high school and college classroom. At least that way, when our children grow into adults, they will know why there is no such thing anymore as fresh water in America. And they will know who was responsible.

Excellent job documenting on the lack of regulation and safety practices with 'wild west' fracking operations all over the shale states. Most seem to be among rural 'small government' Republican voting districts and states. Many Americans, likely some of those affected by fracking, seem to confuse government with industry because the fact is, the two often work hand in glove. Republican candidates for President today want to abolish the EPA. I am sure the frackers would applaud. It is Republican goal today that the new Consumer Protection Agency be demolished, they do this on orders from Wall Street. The film fails to identify the political Party of the Congressional members speaking in the film. It fails to look at the publicly available data on how much companies like Chesapeake Energy give to politicians for their re-election. It fails to ask the people damaged by fracking, how they believe the operations can be cleaned up if not by government regulation and inspection. When the narrator mentions that Pennsylvania cut its own EPA by over 350 jobs, which Party passed the legislation and who was the Governor are not mentioned. Corporations will continue to get by with this sort of abuse of the 'little people' until somebody stops them, and that is why government is there. It should not be 'for sale' and a rubber stamp for industry. If government does nothing to protect water resources and air, it is, to a large extent, the fault of voters, who do not demand action against the big moneyed interests. American voters are too often distracted and manipulated by the perpetual snake oil of hot button, never resolved issues, like gay marriage, 'family values', 'Real Americans', or regulation of women's fertility and choice.Read more ›

Five Star Documentary about how big oil and gas only cares about money, regardless of how they exploit the environment. it is about hydraulic fracturing called "Fracking" which is a process that injects trillions of gallons of water( which we need to conserve for agriculture and urban living) as well as thousands of gallons of caustic and dangerous chemicals that pollute the groundwater as well as the air. Anyone who cares about our planet needs to see this documentary and act on stopping big oil and natural gas interests by joining organizations to fight these special interests such as the EDF (Environmental Defense Fund), Food and Water Watch, The Sierra Club, and the NRDC ( Natural Resources Defense Fund). If you can't afford membership with these organizations, you can at least take action alerts and sign petitions online for free through your Email. If you care about your children and grandchildren's future, you will act immediately before it's too late to reverse climate change, deforestation, and global pollution! Stay Tuned for GasLand 2 which is now available from Amazon Instant Video for the latest installment of this excellent documentary!

I have read, heard, and scene, a lot of content around hydro fracking. The science in unmistakable it will harm the land around where it is done, it will most likely poison well water. It is amazing that with a clear understanding on how this is done reasonable people still do not get it and are blinding by what the big business is providing them even if it is indirect.

This is one of the best, and clearly most honest expose's on the effect of this seemingly amazing "gift" to America.

This movie is both entertaining and poignant. The imagery is beautiful and haunting. After two years of personal research, travels and meetings with folks from multiple states, I am convinced this is the most important environmental topic of the decade. Gasland grabs your attention with testimonies from real people and explains the technical details in a way that everyone can understand.. In Gasland II, Josh Fox takes it a step further by exposing the national and political impacts. This movie is bulletproof and any critics of this movie who cite Frack Nation subscribe to bad logic. Their logic is similar to the following: "I got lung cancer and don't smoke, therefore smoking doesn't cause lung cancer". Claims that scenes in this movie are fake are unfounded. Methane does migrate and yes, fracking waste disposal does cause earthquakes. These are only a few of the impacts of fracking. Watch Gasland for your self and your children.
