Storyline

In desert town Cable Springs, skinny dipping teenagers are surprised by the corpse of local petty rancher Walter Burns. He was dumped after drowning elsewhere. the only car traces lead to the corpse in Las Vegas of natural gas company Conservo's engineer Richard Adams, who was hot and hidden in a dumpster. the trail leads back to Burns' neighbor Bill Gibson, who commits suicide in a spectacularly surprising way, desperate because of extreme pollution, most likely the result of Conservo's 'fracking'. All three had contact with the local one woman-newspaper maker. Written by KGF Vissers

What, did they let the Luddites that made GasLand write their script for them?
6 March 2011 | by (United States) – See all my reviews

Here we go again. Another example of Hollywood trying to preach ignorance at us. It is pretty obvious that they were influenced by that bit of Oscar nominated propaganda called GasLand when they wrote this episode. They even repeated a number of the lies perpetrated by that movie. In the episode, they claim that natural gas exploration has not been subject to specific environmental regulations since 2005. This claim is based on a lie in GasLand in which they claimed that Dick Chaney forced legislation through in that year to exempt the natural gas industry from this law. In reality, these industries ARE regulated under all of the regulations cited. The second lie is the claim that the fracking fluid is this mix of toxic chemicals. It is not. If you want to know the truth about what is actually involved in fracking, then you might want to check out the following source. Its assertions are pretty well documented. http://www.energyindepth.org/2010/06/debunking-gasland/
