‘Gasland:’ Like Moore and Gore

By on 1.25.11 | 9:22AM

The Academy Award nominations were announced this morning, and among those chosen for best documentary was "Gasland," the Josh Fox propagandizer about the alleged dangers and abuses by the natural gas industry. I guess we shouldn't be surprised that an association of Hollywoodites, who in the past have honored error- and lie-riddled films by Michael Moore and Al Gore, would give Fox similar superlative consideration.

For a reminder, you can find out the facts behind some myths promoted by "Gasland" in Commonwealth Foundation's Policy Brief last June on natural gas, and a few more debunked by Energy in Depth.
