Fresh Air: Terri Gross interviews Josh Fox, director of 'Gasland'

Posted by admin on 06/11/10

Originally aired 6/10/2010 on NPR's Fresh Air program, heard weekdays at 3:00pm on WJFF.

 

Gasland, directed by Josh Fox

Josh Fox lives in the Upper Delaware River Basin, on the border straddling Pennsylvania and New York State. In May 2008, he received a letter from a natural gas mining company. The company wanted to lease 19.5 acres of land from Fox — and would pay him $100,000 to do so.

 

"[They say] 'We might not even drill,' " he tells Fresh Air's Terry Gross. " 'We don't even know if there's gas here. It's going to be a fire hydrant in the middle of a field — very little impact to your land. You won't hardly know we're here.' "

 

Instead of saying yes, Fox decided to travel around the country to see how the process of natural gas drilling affected other communities and homeowners. The result, his documentary Gasland, premieres on HBO on June 21.
