He has been criticized, despolied. He is known to have fired the tap water. In 2010, Josh Fox has made the famous film “Gasland”, which has shocked the whole planet. Global mobilisation and opposition to fracking owe him a lot. However, industry and pro-fracking people have accused him of lying.
Now, he comes back with a new movie, “The sky is pink”. With new witnesses and experts, he destroys point by point these accusations. For example, he shows how America’s Natural Gas Alliance takes communication’s advice from the same agency who said that tobacco was not a danger for health, sixty years ago!
In USA, the priority is to ban fracking in New York state.
Gasland was Oscar nominated documentary last year. What was the pitch? 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 “Saudia 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.
His new movie shows news scientific demonstrates, also rare documents from the gas companies themselves. Theses ones come from gas companies themselves. You can upload these files on this link.
