April 7, 2011 – Segment 2

Josh Fox joins us to discuss his Oscar-nominated documentary Gasland, which looks at the effects of high-volume horizontal hydraulic fracturing, or fracking for short.  It follows families whose water has been contaminated by fracking, and looks at the bigger picture of the oil and gas companies who are pushing for the use of this technique at natural gas deposits across the country, including here in Maryland.
