The Gasland documentary was on my to watch list for awhile now, this follow-on segment by the same producer about fracking is very alarming.  \ \ It is very telling that the same lobbyist Hill & Knowlton who told us for years Smoking was not bad is now defending the Natural Gas Industry on fracking.

Originally shared by Paul Frank{.reshare-attribution}20-minute video from the director of the Gasland documentary that brought exploding tap water to the world, on the high-powered lobbying efforts to “change the narrative” on fracking.{.media-link}
