I'm an American overseas and always have to wait for a torrent to get documentaries. Tonight I'll sit down and watch it.

4. You're welcome...

That's why I spread the word... Not everyone has HBO.

This is what I hoped someone would do with this documentary. Also... I'm sending it in the hopes that some "on the fence" will at least watch it.

Powerful documentary, as was the first one...

8. Thanks for the link, MMM.

Just watched it. So much good info in the movie.

Those creeps seem to be bent on destroying the ability of the planet to support life.

And even if the residents can sell their homes and move, where can they move to? They'll still need water to live, and the whole country's water supply is threatened with toxins. They'll still need a climate with a life-sustaining temperature range, and the industry is threatening to make our planet's temperatures approach those of Venus.

10. Just finished watching it.

Shocking is the only way to describe it.
Destroying the land and personal property as well as lives for the sake of corporate profit...and our government protects them not us...
Thanks so much for posting this.

11. Josh Fox RULES!!!

 

Thanks for film link above! Superb film! Been wanting to see this for months! And I sure cannot afford HBO or any TV, so thanks so much!

So much to rant about hydrofracking. We feel sorry for these victims of hydrofracking: Their lifetime investment in their house rendered worthless, as their drinking water has been poisoned and rendered undrinkable and unfit for their barnyard animals. We feel sorry for those white suburbanites who vote democrat (yeah right).

But I am a lifelong urbanite who has seen my side defeated in every election of my lifetime: My every leftist candidate ALWAYS loses, my every progressive ballot initiative ALWAYS loses by overwhelming margins in every election, because even though my urban neighborhoods are 100% democrats, our white suburban neighbors overwhelmingly vote republican and defeat every initiative.

So I cannot help but think this is Karmic Justice for many of these republican-voting homeowners, owners of HUGE ranchhouses, mostly inherited, especially in Texas.

Especially the Texan who says, "after this I don't even call myself a republican, but now I'm an independent." Good for you, Texas dipsht, you'll still vote republican 90% of the time, so calling yourself independent is meaningless.

It is Karmic Justice that so many of these white rural countryfolk who have voted for republicans and against my own urban interests for the past 4 decades are now finally reaping what they sow: They wanted no property taxes for their huge suburban houses, total deregulation, shutdown of EPA and all agencies, and republicans who sellout Congress to Big Oil and Big Energy lobbyists.

Now they whine that their lives are ruined because their drinking water is now toxic, but they cannot get their own republican Congress folk to do a damn thing. O boo hoo.

These republican-voting white country folk been devastating my cities, gutting my public transit and public education and public libraries and public services, bankrupting EPA and regulatory agencies, allowing our bridges to fall down and our unfilled potholes to slowly rot our roads. Now they ruined their own water. O boo hoo hoo.

You want deregulation, you got it. Congrats! So now they must sell their own house and move to my city, on the block with the same negroes and Mexicans they been voting against their whole lives. Karmic Justice for white suburbanites.

Sow as ye sow, so shall ye reap.

12. Wooh... thanks for the return link to Spike Lee...

I'll have to make room for it tonight.

I hear what you are saying, Tom. Of course, the people depicted in GS II don't qualify as the same white flight individuals you describe. I personally don't want to extend one more day of the public being deceived about water quality (apparently the EPA thinks hydrofracting does not effect ground water quality. But, how can they know what they are testing for when the assay run for chemical components often leave out the precursor chemicals.

Everyone needs to test water in their area NOW. We can't wait until drilling begins. The more people doing this, the better. In Pennsylvania, we have folks out there enlisting volunteers to do just this... NOW.

Thanks, and please keep this kicked!

13. Jeez your link dead already!

 

Gasland 2 just got deleted. Jeez that was fast! Well at least I got to see it this morning, and I would not have been able to see it any other way. Thanks!

By contrast those Spike Lee Katrina links went up over one year ago with 85,000 hits.

18. It was especially striking to see

the man in his barn with 3 kinds of water the frackers were forced to provide. Two different kinds in big storage barrels (non-potable), and cases of Nestle's bottled water for human and animal consumption.

It struck me because I had recently seen a clip of the German CEO of Nestle saying that people should understand that access to water is not a right, but a privilege that they should have to pay for (pay his company for). While the frackers are making peoples' access to non-poisoned water impossible, so it has to be purchased in plastic bottles.

I'd be willing to bet that there aren't even any employees of Nestle, who aren't corporate officers, that want to have to purchase water for themselves and their families from their employer. Crazy what the petrochemical industry is getting away with, in pitting their profit interests against the 'mere ability to survive' interests of 99% of the country's (and planet's) population.
