AP - EPA theorizes fracking-pollution link
Stossel: Flammable Water "Had Nothing To Do With The Fracking." On the May 11 edition of Fox News' America Live, guest host Alisyn Camerota interviewed Stossel about his upcoming Fox Business special report on energy. During the segment, Stossel noted concerns many Americans have expressed with nuclear energy, gasoline, and natural gas. A preview of his report was played that included footage from the documentary Gasland in which tap water is lit on fire. The film claims the tap water contains high levels of methane due to leaks from fracking. Stossel dismissed the claims, saying: "Although this documentary Gasland makes it seem like that came from natural gas drilling, environmentalists investigated that, and it turns out there is natural methane in the ground. ... It had nothing to do with the fracking." In fact, it was not environmentalists, but oil and gas industry officials who investigated the claims and declared that the natural gas in the water supply was not related to fracking.
