Film - Gasland Part II (2013)
In this explosive follow-up to his Oscar nominated film Gasland, filmmaker Josh Fox uses his trademark dark humor to take a deeper, broader look at the dangers of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, the controversial method of extracting natural gas and oil, now occurring on a global scale.
The film examines the gas industry's portrayal of natural gas as a clean and safe alternative to oil and coal, cases of well leakages, water and air contamination, and climate implications. It further examines the possible contamination of “our democracy” by the wealthy and powerful oil and gas industry.
Given that we have 50,000 hydraulic fracturing wells in the state of Colorado with plans to build thousands more in the Denver/Julesburg basin, viewing this film is an important part of deepening our understanding of what is at stake.
