The gas lobbyist want to bring this gas exploitation to Quebec in Canada.
This film is an eye openner to how bad is for environment the extraction of gas using the hydraulic (something like that) system. It's dngerous and contaminates the water.
You wont believe your eyes and the true stories of horror of illness caused by this.

A great documentary that touches me due to the massive expansion of gas companies all over. This frightens me and it's a real shame that saving money is more important to politicians and the people that are supposed to protect us than theA great documentary that touches me due to the massive expansion of gas companies all over. This frightens me and it's a real shame that saving money is more important to politicians and the people that are supposed to protect us than the well being of the land we walk on and the water we drink.

Although laws have been passed to get rid of this issue, hydraulic drilling is still a concern for people in the certain states. This documentary sets in Pennsylvania, a state in which a lot of people are drinking dirty water because of this crisis. Josh Fox directs and narrates the film with a devastating voice and real emotions. The audience were shocked by the reality and entertained by the burning water. GasLand is the better documentaries of the year.
OscarBuzz: Best Documentary (good chance of making it to the top 5)

I almost feel bad calling a film about natural gas contamination entertaining, but I mean it in an entirely educational and enthralling way, not a fun and satisfying way.
"GasLand" is a labour of love by documentarist Josh Fox. He's addressing an issue that is not only affecting him and his family very closely, but the whole country and perhaps soon, the whole world. The center of this film's attention is an area of the U.S., the Marcellus Shale (which is a subterranean formation that is beneath New York, Pennsylvania, Virginia and many other states), which is more commonly called by energy companies "the Saudi Arabia of natural gas". Fox travels to the towns around this area to see first hand how hydraulic fracturing has affected them and their lives. Needless to say, his findings are quite horrifying.
"GasLand" is an amateurish-looking film that could have easily been made by any competent documentarist, but its heart is something that only could have been added by the talents of Josh Fox. Gas contamination is a topic that has been addressed vaguely before, but with "GasLand" we see a whole new world and it's alarmingly eyeopening. This is one of the best documentaries of the year. It receiving a well deserved Oscar nomination yesterday morning and I hope that's a push for more people to watch this important film.

Gasland has very high production values and isn't too preachy. It stayed on topic and mentioned solar energy only once, which is notable because this kind of documentary too often goes off the rails into the fantastic or the impossible.
