When filmmaker Josh Fox is asked to lease his upstate New York land for natural gas drilling, he embarks on a cross-country odyssey uncovering a trail of secrets, lies, and contamination. A recently drilled nearby Pennsylvania town reports that residents are able to light their drinking water on fire. This is just one of the many astonishing revelations from Gasland. Join Ling Tsou from United for Action for a discussion after the film on the risks of hydraulic fracturing.
