Truthland Offers Counterpoint to Gasland

On June 13, 2012, the 34-minute film, “Truthland,” debuted nationwide as a rebuttal to the 2010 HBO documentary, “Gasland.” “Truthland” seeks to demonstrate that natural gas drilling and hydraulic fracturing are safe, whereas “Gasland” showed how these processes can negatively impact surrounding communities. Although the costs to produce “Truthland” were underwritten by the Independent Petroleum Association of America and Energy In Depth, none of the experts who appear in the film were paid for their participation.
