Thanks to Ed Brown for passing this along….

When filmmaker Josh Fox discovers that Natural Gas drilling is coming to his area-the Catskillls/Poconos region of Upstate New York and Pennsylvania, he sets off on a 24 state journey to uncover the deep consequences of the United States’ natural gas drilling boom in his new documentary, Gasland. What he uncovers is truly shocking-water that can be lit on fire right out of the sink, chronically ill residents of drilling areas from disparate locations in the US all with the same mysterious symptoms, huge pools of toxic waste that kill cattle and vegetation well blowouts and huge gas explosions consistently covered up by state and federal regulatory agencies. These are just a few of the many absurd and astonishing revelations of a new country called GASLAND.

Gasland the documentary airs nationally on HBO on June 21st at 9pm. Click here to watch the trailer and learn more about the documentary. You can even download a house party toolkit!
