Gasland: Can You Light Your Water on Fire? (Fracking Documentary)

After reading Heat & Light I wanted to see the gas fields described in that book so I took out this documentary.  The frightening part of this documentary is that the man who sets out to find out more about fracking lives in northeastern Pennsylvania by the Delaware, so this whole fracking deal is a lot closer than I thought. 

This is an absolutely frightening documentary.  I have heard about tap water being set on fire, but to see it happen over and over and over again, especially alongside ranches for beef cattle and crops, was disturbing to say the least.

Eye-opening, scary and unfortunately happening right now, this is a film I wished I watched years ago.
