New York Gov. Andrew Cuomo is weighing a proposal to allow hydraulic fracturing, or "fracking," in several communities in New York State. Residents are deeply divided over the controversial drilling method. Supporters of "fracking" say it would give a much-needed financial boost to the affected communities. Those against it argue that the health and environmental risks far outweigh the rewards.
Oscar-nominated filmmaker Josh Fox is aiding in the effort to stop "fracking." In 2010, Fox released "Gasland," a film that documents how he and others were personally affected by franking in the Marcellus Shale. Now Fox has released a follow-up short called The Sky Is Pink, which specifically targets New York's "fracking" proposal.
Fox joined Huffington Post's Jacob Soboroff today for a live discussion. Watch the full recording above.
