Gasland : Can you light your water on fire? by Trish; Fox, Josh; Gandour, Molly Adlesic( Visual )

4 editions published between 2010 and 2011 in English and held by 1,747 WorldCat member libraries worldwide

In 2009, Delaware River Basin native Josh Fox was presented with an interesting proposal: lease his family lands to a natural gas company for a new method of drilling called hydraulic fracturing, and get a check for $100,000. He wouldn't have to do anything but sit back and collect the money. Curious about the process, Fox embarks on an exploration of other areas where natural gas drilling was already in progress, to observe firsthand any potential downsides. In Dimock, Pennsylvania, a town surrounded by fracking activity, he hears stories of wells exploding, black water, flammable drinking water, headaches, pains, long-term sickness. Fox goes on to tour 25 states, cataloging an endless string of frustrated and sick Americans whose land has become toxic and explaining the legislation pushed through by former vice president Dick Cheney, exempting energy companies from key environmental acts--exemptions that make fracking invisible to any regulation or monitoring. Fox becomes an advocate for the cause of the people whose complaints are ignored by the natural gas corporations and the American government. The film documents the pitfalls and perils--borne of avarice of the most bloodless, ruthless kind--of the largest domestic natural gas drilling boom in American history, with the potential to poison millions

In the third film in a trilogy, Oscar Nominated director Josh Fox continues in his deeply personal style, investigating the global impact of climate change, arguably the greatest threat our world has ever faced. Traveling to twelve countries on six continents, Josh acknowledges that while it may be too late to stop some of the worst consequences of climate change--including record drought, superstorms, and rising sea levels--there are places to find hope. He asks, what is it that climate change can't destroy? What is so deep within people that no calamity can take it away?

"An experiment in theatrical critical mass, the 30-member ensemble investigates the huge love that can be created in the face of today's postmodern apocalyptic culture.

How have we dealt with this knowledge, and who is responsible for wielding its power? The Bomb hurtles through half a century of American and world history, travelling through the life of J. Robert Oppenheimer, from the Holocaust to Hiroshima, and to the world through the eyes of survivors of September 11, 2001, New York City"--International WOW Company WWW site, Mar. 3, 2006
