Josh Fox, a talented movie-maker and master purveyor of half-truths and outright lies in the mostly fictional movie Gasland, has just released a new short “documentary” called The Sky is Pink aimed squarely and solely at New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo. It seems the anti-drilling movement is desperate to prevent any kind of high volume hydraulic fracturing from getting a fair evaluation in New York State—so they’re pulling out all the stops to try and make sure it doesn’t.
The short film, unveiled today on the website of Rolling Stone, focuses on New York, much like the original documentary shined a light on Pennsylvania when drilling there was in its infancy. It features interviews with a number of state lawmakers, including Assembly Speaker Sheldon Silver, D-Manhattan; Assemblywoman Barbara Lifton, D-Ithaca; and Sen. Daniel Squadron, D-Brooklyn.*
For the pro-drilling (and pro-truth) response to Gasland, be sure to watch the new 34-minute movie Truthland (click here to view Truthland online).
