Gasland Documentary on HBO

Original post made by Phew on Jul 6, 2010

If you want to get a glimpse into the future of America's self-reliant energy needs, then go watch Gasland on HBO. It shows the perils of grabbing for natural gas at the expense of contaminating our ground water. The BP oil spill, water contamination, air pollution: as a modern society we just don't know when to say stop.

ProPublica has a good series of investigative articles about gas drilling ("fracking") that are free to access: Web Link

All by design. Wake up, don't blame the victims, it is the Zionist Banksters calling the shots and the puppet politicians making and breaking the laws to allow it. Of course HBO is going to blame the people, again. WAKE UP!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!!Turn off the TV.
