GASLAND: Brilliant Documentary on HBO Burns the Gas Industry Lifestyle | June 21, 2010 | By Aaron Schoenberger

Tonight, while working on a client’s social media campaign, I decided to grab my laptop, plop down on the couch, and watch Josh Fox’s brilliant documentary “GASLAND” on HBO. So much for work, I was immediately enthused by the film and had to put my computer to sleep — I just couldn’t help it.

Overall, I have to say, big kudos! Excellent film and way to create exposure for an important, commonly unknown issue that is compromising the future of mankind (and womankind of course :)).

According to the film’s official website, it’s about: “The largest domestic natural gas drilling boom in history has swept across the United States. The Halliburton-developed drilling technology of “fracking” or hydraulic fracturing has unlocked a “Saudia Arabia of natural gas” just beneath us. But is fracking safe? When filmmaker Josh Fox is asked to lease his land for drilling, he embarks on a cross-country odyssey uncovering a trail of secrets, lies and contamination. A recently drilled nearby Pennsylvania town reports that residents are able to light their drinking water on fire. This is just one of the many absurd and astonishing revelations of a new country called GASLAND. Part verite travelogue, part expose, part mystery, part bluegrass banjo meltdown, part showdown.”

When you have a chance, take some time out of your natural gas consuming day and watch GASLAND. You will be happy you did.
