Mark Ruffalo put on U.S. terrorist list

By Alexandra Heilbron on November 29, 2010 | 5 Comments

Mark Ruffalo, 43, has allegedly been placed on the United States terror advisory list after he arranged screenings of Gasland, a documentary about natural gas drilling. He has also voiced opposition to the procedure, which apparently was enough to gain him the attention of Pennsylvania’s Office of Homeland Security. The actor has responded by telling GQ magazine that his presence on the record was “pretty f***in’ funny.” Gasland shows the alleged dangers of natural gas drilling. It follows director Josh Fox as he visits town in the U.S. where natural gas drilling has taken place. In one scene that has gained attention, a local man holds a lighter to his tap, then turns on the water, which catches fire. Others claim to suffer from numerous health issues, saying their water is contaminated. Watch the trailer below:

    It looks interesting. From the trailer it does seem a bit one sided though. I’d like to see the other side of the coin as well. Does this film explore alternative means of drilling or capturing the gas?

    That’s pretty funny. The film looks interesting from the trailer although documentaries tend to be one sided, you can’t believe everything you see and hear in a documentary.

    Flammable water is common in many places with shallow natural gas, which doesn’t go away until its been removed by drilling.

    Did anyone see that CSI (Vegas) episode with the Natural Gas drilling and the old man wanted to show the CSI people the dangers and why his livestock was dying and why his wife and everyone else in the area got cancer and he put a match down a waterwell and it blew him up. Eeerily familiar. I wouldn’t see the movie now (Erin Brockovich-ish?)anyway, but I do like that the world is seeing the dangers of taking from the earth like we do.

    That water that the people are showing in their glasses in that trailer looks like the water that comes out of my tap sometimes. I wonder if they’re drilling where I live. Anyway, I never drink tap water any more. And when it’s brown like that, I hate to wash with it, but I don’t really have a choice.
