Film: "GASLAND" (107 min, Josh Fox, 2010)

The largest domestic natural gas drilling boom in history has swept across the United States. The Halliburton-developed drilling technology of "fracking" or hydraulic fracturing has unlocked a "Saudi Arabia of natural gas" just beneath us. But is fracking safe? When filmmaker Josh Fox is asked to lease his land for drilling, he embarks on a cross-country odyssey uncovering a trail of secrets, lies and contamination. A recently drilled nearby Pennsylvania town reports that residents are able to light their drinking water on fire. This is just one of the many absurd and astonishing revelations of a new country called GASLAND. Part verite travelogue, part expose, part mystery, part bluegrass banjo meltdown, part showdown.

Puget Sound Energy sells you gas that comes from these operations in B.C. and Alberta, Utah, and Wyoming.  The Green River Basin is featured in the film and shows how the natural gas is produced that heats your home and water, and that makes 30% of the electricity sold by PSE.
