"'Gasland' Sequel Accuses Energy Industry of Corrupting Government"

"Josh Fox galvanized the U.S. anti-fracking movement with his incendiary 2010 documentary 'Gasland.' Now he’s back with a sequel — and this time, he’s targeting an audience of just one."

"'We want the president to watch the movie, and we want him to meet with the people who are in it,' says Fox, whose 'Gasland Part II' makes its HBO debut Monday.

He contends President Barack Obama’s professed support of drilling and fracking for natural gas ignores the environmental and public health toll of the drilling boom: 'It looks like he’s really sincere and earnest in his desire to take on climate change, but he’s got the completely wrong information and thus the completely wrong plan.'"
