Who’s Afraid Of ‘Gasland’?

Who could possibly want to squelch the anti-fracking movie Gasland? Hmmm, let me think …. while considering this story from SFGate (submitted by ‘Rainer’ – thanks!):

Actor Mark Ruffalo has been placed on a terror advisory list by U.S. officials after organizing screenings for a new documentary about natural gas drilling.

The “Zodiac” actor arranged showings for “GasLand” earlier this year and voiced his concerns about the practice in relation to the national water supplies.

But his efforts to raise awareness and demand a stop to natural gas drilling reportedly attracted the attention of officials from Pennsylvania’s Office of Homeland Security – and he recently discovered it had landed him on a terror alert watchlist…

    Who on Earth would those people be that would be against a plentiful supply of non-oil cheap energy?

    Um. The oil companies?

    What an unbelievably tautologically fucking amazing coincidence!

    Who’s afraid of gasland?!?

    The big fucking oil companies, that’s who.

    Open your eyes.
