In “Gasland,” New York City filmmaker Josh Fox tries to scare people about natural gas and hydraulic fracturing. It made one Pennsylvania mom who had wells planned on her land wonder what she was getting into. What would happen when she turned on the faucet? Would it be safe for her animals and kids?
Shelly — a teacher and farmer — needed to have the facts. So she took a trip and talked to experts from industry, environmental groups and universities, as well as people who can light their tap on fire. Nobody got paid — they were just asked to tell the truth.
Watch the movie to learn what it’s really like in the real Gasland.
