Josh Fox and Gasland II Featured on Diane Rehm Show

Today, Josh Fox and a rep from the oil and gas industry were featured today on NPR's Diane Rehm Show in discussion of the newly released movie Gasland II. Filmmaker Josh Fox brought attention to the environmental risks of the method of natural gas extraction known as fracking in his 2010 documentary “Gasland.” He’s back with a sequel warning of even more profound dangers.  Reading some of the comments below the story, it seems likely the fracking industry is taking the film seriously because they are attempting to discredit it across the web.

The story of Gasland II was also featured on Morning Edition.  You can listen to the report and read the transcript here.  Learn more about Josh Fox's history with the Gasland documentaries here.
