GASLAND

This Oscar-nominated documentary sickened and angered me. It's pretty hard to believe T-Boone Picken's claim that fracking is perfectly safe. The evidence in the film is overwhelming. It's almost like he didn't watch the movie because he already convinced himself otherwise. It's equally hard to believe that we have let government oversight of water and air lapse so badly. I wonder what it will take for the pendulum to swing back to the correct direction. Near extinction of the human race?

This movie should be required viewing. I was particularly proud of our Congressperson Diana DeGette, who really stuck it to the oil & gas industry people in questioning them.
