Drilling for Natural Gas

Josh Fox, director of “Gasland,” discusses the possible hazards of domestic natural gas drilling. When he received an unexpected offer of $100,000 for the natural gas drilling rights to his property in the Delaware River Basin, on the border of New York and Pennsylvania, he resisted the urge to accept.  Instead, he set off on a cross-country journey to investigate the environmental risks of agreeing to the deal.

“Gasland” debuts on HBO June 21, at 9:00 pm.
