The High Cost of Cheap Gas

L'alto costo del gas economico
by Jeffrey Barbee 2014 56'

The High Cost of Cheap Gas is a story about how the lessons learned in Colorado's west can help inform smart decisions about to control hydraulic fracturing as it starts to roll out across the world. Jeffrey Barbee and Mira Dutschke travel around the world in search of the real facts behind this controversial business. From secret drilling operations in Africa's best protected parks to new information about how fracking affects unborn children in Parachute, Colorado, this is a hard look at an industry that is globalizing.
