Must-See Gasland Part II on HBO Monday: Natural Gas, Once A Bridge, Now A Gangplank

Josh Fox - Gasland2If you liked the Oscar-nominated fracking exposé “Gasland” by Josh Fox, you’ll love the sequel Gasland, Part II, which is being broadcast on HBO Monday night.

I think it’s a better movie, more entertaining and even more compelling in making a case that we are headed on a bridge to nowhere — a metaphorical gangplank — with our hydraulic fracturing feeding frenzy.

Future generations living in a climate-ruined world will be stunned that we drilled hundreds of thousands of fracking and reinjection wells:

  • Even though we knew that fossil fuels destroy the climate and accelerate drought and water shortages;
  • Even though we knew that leaks of heat-trapping methane from fracking may well be vitiating much of the climate benefits of replacing coal with gas; and
  • Even though each fracked well consumes staggering amounts of water, much of which is rendered permanently unfit for human use and reinjected into the ground where it can taint even more ground water in the coming decades.

TVNL Comment: Watch the film if you care about your own health and the health of those around you.  Watch the film if you want to understand the hoax being perpetrated by the gas companies.  Watch the film for the survival of this country.  Please, watch the film and share it wherever you can.
