Gasland on Democracy Now

 Amy Goodman's progressive radio show ran a segment yesterday on natural-gas drilling, featuring documentary filmmaker Josh Fox (Gasland) and Damascus Citizens for Sustainability's Joe Levine. Here's Fox on his film:

I got on the road and went to about thirty different states—the film focuses on about ten of them; it’s a road movie—and, you know, went from place to place and discovered the same story, that the gas drilling companies were saying one thing and that the people were getting something quite different, and uncovered this Orwellian nightmare of, you know, people being promised a great deal of money and then, you know, ending up with towns that were ruined.
