This Way Out

For the sake of brevity—and for the pure fact that an Oscar-nominated film about natural gas drilling really, truly, has nothing to do with Bermuda—I'll keep this short and sweet. Today on my Outside Television blog This Way Out, you can read about the Oscar buzz surrounding Gasland, a film nominated for Best Documentary at this Sunday's Academy Awards, which uncovers the nasty truth behind natural gas drilling (ya know, how it eventually causes methane gas to find its way into your drinking water, which you can then light on fire). Problem is, big energy companies including Haliburton, BP and Shell aren't too happy about it. So much so that their lobbyists are calling for the film's nomination to be pulled. I don't know about you but that doesn't sound like playing fair to me. Hate the player not the game, ya know what I mean? If you're interested then click on over to Outside Television and read my piece Oscar Buzz For Mountainfilm Documentary. In the meantime I'll be back tomorrow with your regularly scheduled Bermuda Shorts programming.
