Gasland: The "Benign" Art of Fracking



What never ceases to amaze me is the way we support tech that pollutes our planet in ways that boggle the mind. The other thing that amazes me is the unwillingness of people to analyze any given technology to see if the benefits out way the costs before making a choice that, in this case, will impact society for decades to come. With this in mind, check out Gasland, a documentary intended to make one think, an art form all too rare in this day and age of instant gratification not being fast enough to satisfy one's insatiable craving to be entertained.

Note: Fracking, in this case, is not the preferred swear word on Battlestar Galatica but rather a process designed to extract natural gas from the bowels of the earth. :)
