Next Monday, HBO’s Summer Series continues with the explosive follow-up to Josh Fox’s Oscar-nominated documentary “Gasland,” in which he uses his trademark dark humor to take a deeper, broader look at the dangers of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, on an international level in GASLAND PART II.
Debuting MONDAY, JULY 8 (9:00-11:15 p.m. ET/PT), exclusively on HBO, GASLAND PART II shows how the stakes have been raised on all sides in one of the most important environmental issues facing the nation today. The film argues 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. In addition, the film looks at how the powerful oil and gas industries are, in Fox’s words, “contaminating our democracy.” The timely documentary premiered at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival.
