I have finally finished watching Gasland the movie on oil and gas in the US – initially concerned with fracking. There is so much in this movie that describes the unpalatable actions of the corporatocracy, and equally distressing is to see ordinary people suffering because laws are circumvented to enable profits. Karma dictates that the corporate execs should live with these people, their families should drink the water and breathe the chemically-polluted air they have created, but that won’t happen – and of course it shouldn’t. But when you see the extent to which these companies maim fellow citizens it’s a disgrace – and then buy them off with a pittance.
