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?

All reviews on this movie comes in at 8-10 except for the previous 2 which must be from a congressman & a gas company exec. Visit http://www.energyindepth.org/2010/06/debunking-gasland if you would like to waste your time on supposed studies to debunk common sense or otherwise do what the documentary suggests in the first place, "Research" make up your own mind. Thousands of gas wells all around the country, Each created by fracturing the ground(in every sense of the word)thereby releasing the gas into absolutely everything? sounds good to me were can i sign up. People with education & common sense(which seems to have been killed off by greedy politicians or bankers whatever you choose to call them)need to stand together & act. A thousand voices won't help even 10 000 is not enough, but it is a start & when people start coming together in their hundreds & thousands thats when change will come but only then.
