Choosing to watch the documentary GASLAND so close to the holiday’s probably wasn’t my best move. But I did, and it educated me to the horrors of fracking (pumping toxic chemicals into the ground) and good old fashion corporation greed. The film is solid, and non preachy. GASLAND is a great “public awareness film”, where real people talk about their stories and history, then they light their tap water on fire. Yup. Imagine going to your kitchen sink, putting a lit match close to the water flowing down and creating a mini explosion right there in your sink! Cool. (but not really)..
Gasland is available on DVD and you can learn more here: http://www.gaslandthemovie.com
