If you are a fan of HBO's notorious left leaning "documentaries" then this one will not disappoint you. If you have your own brain and can think independently and do a little of your own research you will find this documentary to be worthless.

"What I didn't know was that the 2005 energy bill pushed through Congress by Dick Cheney exempts the oil and natural gas industries from the Safe Drinking Water Act. They were also exempt from the Clean Air Act, the Clean Water Act, the Superfund law, and about a dozen other environmental and Democratic regulations."

Dick Cheney didn't do any harm to the Federal Clean Air Act because there is no "Halliburton Loophole" statutory law amendment of the Clean Air Act contained in the Energy Policy Act of 2005; you can read it for yourself.

I can tell you with 100% certainty that the Federal Clean Air Act has never been amended to incorporate a categorical oil and gas industry exemption from the fundamental jurisdictional requirements of the Act. Josh Fox's claim that the oil and gas industry has some sort of categorical exemption from regulation and that hydraulic fracturing and other oil and gas industry process equipment and facilities are exempted from regulation under the Federal Clean Air Act is fabrication and erroneous conflation. The Federal Clean Air Act affords U.S. EPA full jurisdiction over emissions from the oil and gas industry. This statutory jurisdiction takes place both directly and through the states through development of federally approved and federally enforceable state implementation plans under Section 110 of the Clean Air Act.

Also, contrary to Gasland claims, there is no exemption contained in the Federal Clean Water Act either that is a categorical exemption of the oil and gas industry from jurisdiction under the Act for hydraulic fracturing process wastewater.....another Gasland falsehood.

I could go on but what's the point? Get you news from Bill Maher and never read anything of fact then make your own documentary about how G.W. Bush is causing the continuous failure of the Obama administration.
