Gasland and Gasland II are documentaries which investigate and report on the practice of "High Volume Slick Water Hydraulic Fracturing" (Hydro Fracking) as a means to dislodge and extract Natural Gas. Gasses which are otherwise trapped in shale rock formations far underground. It's no longer accurate to call the extraction of this gas "natural", as there is nothing natural about pumping millions of gallons of chemically laced water thousands of feet underground under tremendous pressure, resulting in mini earthquakes which cause the rock formations to fracture. The chemicals break the molecular bond of methane from the shale rock and also assist with a variety of other drilling challenges. In the original movie, Gasland, a list of almost 600 chemicals are referenced in the movie (although the count is now known to be over 900), many which cause cancer or other deadly diseases. Additional complications include poisoned or flammable water supplies all across the US. Ironically, the fracking companies don't have to disclose which chemicals they are using and are EXEMPT from the Clean Water Act, the Clean Drinking Water Act, and the Clean Air Act... among many others. It's scary what we'll let big businesses do to us as they cash in on harvesting the fossil fuels which we're all addicted to.
