    Documentary: Gasland

    Anyone check this out? It's about the explosion of natural gas wells and the health challenges that come with "fracking."

    Extremely disturbing.

    It's obviously one guy's view and presentation so I'm open to the other side.

    I am open to someone explaining how one's tap water can suddenly burst into flames due to the amount of gas in the line.

    I saw this a few months back. I have been speaking about the dangers of hydro-fracking since I first learned about the process about 5 years ago. Cheney's involvement with Halliburton and Halliburton's push for the fracking process to expand (and their efforts to try to destroy the environment) are the sole reason I didn't vote for Bush/Cheney in 2004. As a moderate conservative, I turn a lot of heads when I get on my soapbox about hydro-fracking and mountain top mining.

    Time magazine just published a review on this last week. I found it interesting that there is no Federal Overview of this industry.
