Offshore oil drilling isn’t our only problem right now.
The search for clean natural gas has led to a lot of drilling in areas where gas is locked in shale. Unfortunately, the method that is used to break up the shale — called hydraulic fracturing — also causes severe pollution and poisoning of drinking water in these areas.
This is the trailer for Gasland, Josh Fox’s HBO documentary that shows precisely how damaging shale drilling is. The film won Special Jury Prize at the 2010 Sundance Film Festival.
