Gasland

When filmmaker Josh Fox discovers that Natural Gas drilling is coming to his area—the Catskillls/Poconos region of Upstate New York and Pennsylvania, he sets off on a 24 state journey to uncover the deep consequences of the United States’ natural gas drilling boom. What he uncovers is truly shocking—water that can be lit on fire right out of the sink, chronically ill residents of drilling areas from disparate locations in the US all with the same mysterious symptoms, huge pools of toxic waste that kill cattle and vegetation well blowouts and huge gas explosions consistently covered up by state and federal regulatory agencies. These are just a few of the many absurd and astonishing revelations of a new country called GASLAND.

Maybe Fox news will point out how Gov't interference is destroying these peoples drinking water while the people whose drinking water is being destroyed are turning to Gov't for some interference in saving their drinking water from the companys destroying it.

Note to ChrisGrayley, please consider what happens to a persons dependence upon Gov't for handouts when they and their familys are sickened by polluted water.

Read in the daytime, live where the water is, and grow food locally.

What's your plan? Poison your neighbor? That is so "unlibertarian".
