Storyline

It is happening all across America-rural landowners wake up one day to find a lucrative offer from an energy company wanting to lease their property. Reason? The company hopes to tap into a reservoir dubbed the "Saudi Arabia of natural gas." Halliburton developed a way to get the gas out of the ground-a hydraulic drilling process called "fracking"-and suddenly America finds itself on the precipice of becoming an energy superpower. Written by Sundance Film Festival

A film that stands on scare tactics and fiction
3 July 2013 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

You do realize that none of this film is based on fact, right? Since Fox made "Gasland" he declines to participate in interviews and answer questions about the most pertinent images and "facts" to his documentary. It really is kind of amazing how people just eat up what they are spoon fed through effective lies. If you want the truth watch, counter documentaries like "Truthland" or "FrackNation." A documentary like this has led to drilling bans for multiple counties and states, and I am dumbfounded that the American people can believe a story whose only crutch is complete fiction. The tag-line of the documentary is "Can you light your water on fire?" Fox himself admitted that flammable water is a natural phenomena, that has happened well before fracking. Just get the facts people...
