Fracking: Live chat with EWG & 'Gasland' director Josh Fox

Josh Fox's new documentary "Gasland" looks at negative results for communities from drilling for natural gas. He dreamed up the project after his family was offered some $100,000 by a company to prospect on their land in Northeastern Pa.

The film focuses on the health and environmental dangers involved in drilling for natural gas. It's the work of director Josh Fox, who started the project after his family in Northeastern Pennsylvania was offered nearly $100,000 from an energy company to take their 19.5 acres of land for hydraulic fracturing. Fox traveled to towns across America where land, water, animals and people have been negatively impacted by natural gas drilling. Drilling Around the Law Report
