Summary "One of the most controversial documentaries in recent years, Gasland is a compelling and emotional first-person story of discovery and, ultimately, empowerment. In 2008, theatre director Josh Fox received a letter from a natural gas company, offering him one hundred thousand dollars for permission to explore his upstate New York property. Josh's curiosity led him to ask questions and he discovered that the method for extracting this valuable resource from the 'Saudi Arabia' of reserves - hydraulic fracturing or 'fracking' is exempt from several important federal protections, including the clean water act."--Container
