Josh Fox: Gasland. 2010

Columbia University alumnus Josh Fox introduced me to ‘fracking’. Halliburton prefers to call it ‘Hydraulic Fracturing’. Either way, you can set your house water on fire. Modelling himself on American banjo playing folk protest singer Pete Seeger, Fox crafts an emphatic documentary on endless greed and endless suffering. Educative, to say the least. Take a look.

Hydraulic fracturing was exempted from the Safe Drinking Water Act in the Energy Policy Act of 2005. How is this even conceived??? Peeps please spread this docu.

Great movie…I especially like the part when he describes his family’s land in Milanville, Pennsylvania. When he talks about the water running across his family land and says “this is the source of all life ….and it is”. When will movies like this find viewing time on national tv? Probably never..sad sad sad.

This documenatary left me seething with anger…I do believe i am a progressive thinker..I still believe in goodness..but, but how is it that corporations are unyielding devils in disguise??! I am less hopeful now of a better world..a dream.

I am currently a sophomore at Penn Hills High School in Pittsburgh, Pennsylvania. My high school is not anything special, its just your average public school. I have been looking for material for our ‘Awareness Club’ and this is just great. Thanks for sharing.

Halliburton was led by Dick Cheney once. Nuff said.
