Product Description

Its happening all across America - rural landowners waking up to find a lucrative offer from an energy company wanting to lease their property. The reason? The company hopes to tap into a reservoir dubbed the ""Saudi Arabia of natural gas."" Halliburton developed a way to get the gas out of the ground - a hydraulic drilling process called ""fracking""- and suddenly America finds itself on the precipice of becoming an energy superpower.

Hydraulic fracturing (or fracking) has left a trail of devastation across vast swathes of the USA. This stylish documentary shows the full scale of the menace.
As the frackers start their pursuit of short term profit in the UK and Europe, at immeasurable long term cost, this DVD could be real life saver.
Well-informed about the big picture, yet personal and intimate, this is a unique piece of film-making. I think the Academy bottled giving it the Oscar that it deserves.

oh my goodness, i had never heard of fracking - until i heard a piece about it on radio 4 - (hooray for them).
it was so interesting, that it prompted me to research a bit more, and i found GASLAND.
it hardly seems possible that this is going on in america, the devastation it causes is not only awful on a visual level, but crucially it is the impact on people's health and wildlife that is heartbreaking. i can't understand how it's been allowed to happen. in terms of the U.S. Department of Agriculture, what are they doing? have they all gone deaf, dumb and blind? where is the protection for the people?

megacorporations will hack, frack and whack whatever needs to be done to get their buck, so however galling it's not surprising
(a bit incredible i guess) but everyone else: hello......is there anybody out there?

see this film, because it will amaze and astound you, it will also inform you and prepare you.
last i heard, fracking is coming to the uk. forewarned is forearmed.

if we have the information and don't do anything to stop it, then we deserve all we get.

see this film because the planet deserves better.
see this film because you can tell other people about it.
see this film for a million reasons, but mostly because it must to be seen.

Gasland [DVD] [2010]

Whether you've heard or not about the new Gas industry and the "Fracking" process which is only just taking off in the UK, you need to see this film. The new Gas industry has been at work in the U.S. for the past ten years or more, causing devastating and hideous health problems for U.S. citizens, and its coming to Britain or rather its here, and For you and your family's future you need to watch this film GASLAND as it shows you what you need to know ( right now ), not in a few years time that will be too late. Spend the few quid and do you and everyone around you the biggest favour in yours and their life and watch this film. Then take a look around your part of the world and at your local planning authority to see if its coming to your area SOON. If you have any doubts about the affects it will bring to your life after watching the film trawl the web for likeminded people who have seen the film and decided that what it shows is not for their life and find out what they know their out there in thier thousands. Its easy just type Fracking into any search engine and keep trawling.

4.0 out of 5 stars A rightful warning! 23 Jun 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
You may well have seen a guy setting fire to his water, right there in his kitchen... in fact there are many people in the US shown in the movie whose water can be set on fire with a cigarette lighter. Having researched the subject of fracking for some of my students, I began to realise just how serious this whole gas rush is, and the devastating consequences it can have on the environment and people's health.

There are some surprising discoveries in this road-trip "bluegrass banjo meltdown" movie (it's fair to say the director plays a mean banjo). The number of people affected is particularly harrowing. The number of wells that have popped up all over the States is even more disturbing. And when your horse, and three cats who never go outside, start losing their hair, you know something's up. Something nasty is in the air, one might say. And of course, in people's drinking/shower water.

The subject is tackled with sensitivity, honesty and this only adds to the film's credibility. It's certainly not a Hollywood affair, as Fox is a self-confessed amateur moviemaker, but again, this only increases its appeal. Factual without being overly scientific, full to the brim with interviews and evidence of Fox's extensive research.

I shall say no more about the plot; that's for you to see, but see it you must. And so should everybody, because I don't want this coming over to my home country (France) and I daresay people in the UK would feel more than slightly peeved to see a load of gas wells, water storage containers, increased lorry traffic, pipelines buried underground, and of course, the obligatory contaminated drinking water, in their front gardens.

5.0 out of 5 stars Must be seen............ 9 Dec 2011
Format:DVD|Verified Purchase
For a close-up view of the effects of shale gas extraction by hydraulic fracturing, or fracking as it's known, this documentary will not leave you unmoved. This assault on the earth, and all creatures living on it, including people, is nothing short of barbaric, I cannot think of a better word for it. It is the environmental equivalent of the de-regulated greed which brought our economies to the brink, for no real benefit except to a tiny unscrupulous few.

A well-made film, and I believe a must for those who live in areas threatened by this pointless process.

Up-date note Dec. 2012: The shale gas industry have tried to pick holes in this film's account of the problems resulting from fracking. Josh Fox has now produced a follow-up to Gasland which deals with these claims, point by point, with expert witnesses. I will review this when I get a copy.
