Gasland Documentary on HBO

Original post made by Phew, Another Pleasanton neighborhood, 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.
