Watch Gasland online

Intro by Top Documentary Films

Gasland Josh Fox cataloged what is happening across America as gas drilling has embraced hydraulic fracturing, developed by Halliburton. Tap water ignites, people get sick, plants and animals die. Support the FRAC Act: Write Congress (2010, 103 mins)

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.

  1. Saw the first segment this morning. This guy is better than Michael Moore. By far.

    If we could get MM off his corpulent backside by having these two competing against one another, I think everyone would benefit, everyone might mobilize.

  2. The stage vu movie doesn’t play either. Says you need plugins but they don’t download.. bummer. I sent the youtube link around to everyone and never got to watch it myself before it was taken down for copyright issues.

  3. damn, but thanks for the heads up, JG.

    I had no trouble downloading the plug ins.
