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.

Our poor Aussie farmers are helpless to stop companies from exploiting their land because of government policy. It's wrong.
What sort of Legacy are we leaving for our children and their children? Contaminated water supplies, air quality and food crops restricted.
It would appear the Australian Government has not heard of a company called Clean Teq Holdings. (CLQ) They specialise in treatment of all types of mining waste. This could be a step forward in stopping the development so that it doesn't get out of hand.
Worth a thought!
Well done Josh Fox.
