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.

This film is so full of lies and half truths that it's scary that people are taking it at face value. Do your own research before jumping on Josh Fox's bandwagon. The biggest lie and theatrical show was lighting tap water on fire. Interviews from residents in Dimock, PA show that the water has had flammable methane in it from as far back as the 70's, long before fracking was around. The EPA did test after test after test of well water and found NO contamination from fracking.
Another lie was from Fox's co-hort Alyssa Rich who lied about having a PhD in Air Pollution Control Design and later under oath said she "misspoke". She had teamed up with a citizen to sue the gas company for millions, even making a video lighting water from his garden hose on fire. After an investigation was launched they found the video was a hoax and they admitted to pumping gas through the hose to make it catch fire.
Another lie... A spike in breast cancer in Texas's shale area. This is news to the several cancer experts including Susan G Coleman for the cure. There was no evidence about a spike.
This fear-mongering is unethical.
Do your own research before letting yourself get caught up in the fear-based reporting of Gasland.

This movie isn't even worth one star, unless you look at it as a work of pure science fiction. Do yourself a favour and watch the documentary Frack Nation which exposes all the fraudulent claims made in Gasland. Unfortunately, far too many people can't be bothered to look past their one source of information for all their 'facts'. Gasland's creator has become rich, as have most environmental and global warming alarmists like Al Gore and David Suzuki. A very nice little business these people propagate - instilling fear in a large portion of the population, people all too willing to join the cult, desperately wanting to believe that man is the evil perpetrator destroying our world, and profiting handsomely from that.
Wake up people and dig a little deeper to find out the rest of the story. The information isn't hard to find if you look for it.

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 ›
