Gasland Part II -- More Misinformation and Inaccuracies

Gasland Part II premiers tonight on HBO.  According to the film’s website, Gasland Part II seeks “to argue[] that the gas industry’s portrayal of natural gas as a clean and safe alternative to oil is a myth and that fracked wells inevitably leak over time, contaminating water and air, hurting families, and endangering the earth’s climate with the potent greenhouse gas, methane.” The first Gasland movie was rife with inaccuracies and scare tactics to inflame audiences.  Those that have had the pleasure of critically reviewing Josh Fox’s new film on natural gas development conclude that Gasland Part II is much of the same.  As aptly summarized by American’s Natural Gas Alliance, “like its predecessor, [Gasland Part II] attempts to scare audiences with misinformation and inaccuracies about natural gas development and ignores the many benefits that natural gas brings to communities around our nation.” I encourage everyone who decides to tune in tonight to read “The Truth About Gasland” prepared by ANGA (www.anga.us/blog/2013/7/8/more-of-the-same-in-gasland-part-2) as well as the analysis prepared by Energy in Depth, “Debunking Gasland, Part II,” which looks at the case studies and subjects appearing in the film and contrasts them with reality (www.energyindepth.org/national/debunking-gasland-part-ii/).  Facts and science can set the record straight on natural gas development and hydraulic fracturing.
