Tension begins when Josh Fox researches a letter he receives at his 
rural PA farmhouse, inviting him to sell his land for $100,000 and 
permission to mine natural gas. His neighbors tell him horror stories 
about water contamination due to hydraulic fracturing.

Fox tours other states where the process has already contaminated myriad 
underground wells, His continuing investigation ties this unchecked 
chemical process to Dick Cheney's Halliburton activity and bills 
covertly passed during the Bush administration [and sustained under Obama].

*Gasland* sheds light on a practice that many American citizens have 
assumed is benign. This is grassroots documentary filmmaking at its 
finest. Gasland is edifying in the most entertaining and palatable way.

“/We've poured our poisons into the world as though it were a bottomless 
pit.. and we go on gobbling them up. It's hard to imagine how the world 
could survive another century of this abuse, but nobody's really doing 
anything about it. It's a problem our children will have to solve, or 
their children/.” ~Daniel Quinn, novelist (Ishmael)

“/It is not the man who has little, but he who desires more, that is

Why should YOU care? It's YOUR money that pays for US/Israeli wars - on 
Iraq, Afghanistan, Iran, Palestine, So America, etc etc - for 
billionaire bailouts, for ever more ubiquitous US prisons, for the loss 
of liberty and civil rights...
