Energy In Depth is unwittingly helping GASLAND with PR for the Oscar. They wrote a letter to the Academy of Motion Pictures Arts and Sciences asking them to disqualify GASLAND for consideration for Best Documentary.
This just cracks me up! How desperate and pathetic.
Here’s an excerpt from the letter:
As perhaps you have already seen, GasLand draws heavily on testimonials from individuals who actively oppose natural gas development in general, and the use of hydraulic fracturing – a commonly deployed, decades-old technology for stimulating oil and natural gas – in particular.
Now why would anyone just up and start opposing natural gas for no good reason. Could it be that they have been harmed by the industry?
Dallas Observer did an interview with Josh Fox, Director of GASLAND, who was in North Texas recently filming a sequel.
When I was there I did film some new cases that really were heartbreaking. Lisa Parr, with her and her children and her husband all suffering the effects which they believe are due to the emissions all around their house — and the chemical evidence in their blood backs them up.
So far, I have not seen Hollywood be influenced by any thugs no matter how much power and influence they wield.
