Ten years from now this country will be left with no gas, no oil and no clean water.
MasterMike
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.

This excellent documentary takes you across the US to show just a hand full of people whom are being affected by the gas industry.

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.

I borrowed this from the library and liked it. It is the type of documentary where you get a lot of information and you should do your own research. I live in one of the areas he talks about. There are some things I think he does not portray accurately, but there are a number of issues he raises which should researched.

Another Must See. It's hard to believe that so much of the drinking water in the U.S. is poisoned. Shame on the gas companies for putting plain old greed ahead of every citizen's right to water.

This documentary explores the problems now and in the future regarding our reliance on fossil fuels. Watch the sequel, "Gasland II" to further understand the problems facing the world.

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.

After viewing Gasland I was angry at how corrupt our government has become. There is a water shortage for farmers in drought areas and to see MILLIONS UPON MILLIONS of gallons of water being trucked in and used for hydrofracking when instead they could be HELPING farmers is astounding. I know there are some who say natural gas is worth drilling. But with 50% of all drilled wells failing how safe is it when the aquifers systems are compromised. There is NO WHERE ELSE TO GET WATER BUT HERE. It is the life blood of our planet and it is being POISONED. How (if you are Christian) do you explain to GOD in your hour of JUDGEMENT what you did to PROTECT what GOD himself has created? When he asks, "What did you do to protect MY INVESTMENT?" How can you look him in the face with a clean conscious and say you did when you sat on the sidelines and watched as greed tore apart HIS planet. This is our HOME and the only one of it's kind in the GALAXY. Think about that for a second and then ask yourself CAN AND SHOULDN'T WE BE DOING BETTER.
