PART 2 of 2: America's got gas...more than 100 year's worth say energy experts. But much of this natural gas is trapped in deeply buried shale rock formations, and can only be tapped with special drilling practices. That has led to an intense environmental debate over the risks and rewards of producing this home grown and clean burning fuel. But what is rhetoric? And what is reality?
"Shale Gas and America's Future" provides a unique look at how local communities in Pennsylvania are balancing the trade offs related to gas drilling for themselves and the nation. It's a story that affects all of us, and this film is the only one that provides an in depth look at the issue from both sides. It features unique drilling footage, community meetings and interviews with the state's top environmental regulator.
