Gasland Part II
Frequently Bought Together
Customers Who Bought This Item Also Bought
GASLAND PART II is a provocative follow-up to filmmaker Josh Fox s award-winning feature debut GasLand. The new film continues to explore the controversial method of extracting natural gas and oil known as hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, arguing how dangerous the process is, and how pervasive the gas industry s influence on public policy has become. Tempered by Fox s trademark dark humor, the film shows how the stakes have been raised on all sides in one of the most divisive environmental issues facing our nation today. GASLAND PART II pierces prevailing myths by arguing how and why fracked wells leak over time, contaminating our water and air, hurting families and endangering the Earth s climate with methane, a powerful greenhouse gas. It also sheds light on the global consequences of fracking, as more and more countries are following the U.S. s lead in drilling for gas.

And it was moderated by banjo playin' Josh Fox himself.
I saw the film as tempered from the previous optics of flaming faucets and more attuned to the process of corporate infuence if not outright control of government. The path is greased for the drillers. And the wells are spreading like a pandemic. The property, climate, and toxicity risks from fracking are real and happening. We can live without gas but we can't live without affordable potable water.
The bottom line message is to organize and develop vocal mass citizen opposition before the need is apparent. Ultimately, politicians truly must heed majority demands of their voters to get/stay in office.
However, when the need to oppose fracking is obvious as mineral rights are bought and wells are drilled, the politicians are already in the pocket and the juggernaut is already unstoppable.
In the film we see the wells adjacent and startingly close to Josh's previously secluded home.
Tis better to get organized ahead of the game, and in certain areas that is STILL possible. Having this video's information is crucial. I suggest watching it with a pen/paper handy. Write down a few items for "review" with any who watch it with you. Doing a home screening with a dozen neighbors, and following it up with a discussion (hitting again the high points) will help cement the information for everyone. That makes it easier for them to talk to more people about it. And ANY organized opposition creates hesitation when someone is straddling the fence over an "offer" from the frackers. People who have community ties do not want their neighbors mad at them, and it is pretty simple to show angst over destroyed water.
Activism-wise, bring the subject up at rural "neighborhood watch" meetings. Maybe the "crime" in your area is more highly organized than the common druggies that eat up most crime-watch discussions.Read more ›
