The bad gaslands

Posted By on Mon, Jun 21, 2010 at 6:32 AM

Here's a TV alert tonight from David Koon about a documentary topic with high relevance in Arkansas:

On Monday at 9 p.m. on HBO is the TV debut of the documentary "Gasland" which won at Sundance. It's about the gas-drilling industry, with particular attention paid to the environmental and health costs — sick animals, people claiming their water is contaminated with methane/propane/benzene, water that actually burns, exploding waterwells, etc. Here's a PBS interview (link fixed) with the director that includes clips from the documentary.

Noted: the gas lobby isn't happy about the movie.
