While preparing to finish "Gasland 2," Josh Fox has unleashed an 18-minute short video doc that's keeping up the heat on the dangers of fracking. "The Sky is Pink," available here on Vimeo, is already generating major online buzz and ratcheting up views. The short film specifically attacks New York Governor Andrew Cuomo as he debates lifting the ban on fracking in New York State. At the end of the short film, he asks: "Governor Cuomo, what color will the sky be over New York?"

While preparing to finish "Gasland 2," Josh Fox has unleashed an 18-minute short video doc that's keeping up the heat on the dangers of fracking. "The Sky is Pink," available here on Vimeo, is already generating major online buzz and ratcheting up views. The short film specifically attacks New York Governor Andrew Cuomo as he debates lifting the ban on fracking in New York State. At the end of the short film, he asks: "Governor Cuomo, what color will the sky be over New York?"

On the "Gasland" Facebook page, Fox calls for New Yorkers to call the State Senate switchboard, ask for your Senator, and tell them to pass the Health Impact Assessment for Fracking in New York. Today is the last day of session: 518-455-2800.

According to a recent story in the New York Times, the state administration’s plan is to limit fracking to five counties in the southern part of the state and places restrictions on drilling near drinking water supplies.

But as the Rolling Stone's Jeff Goodell wrote on the site's blog: "These are treacherous waters for you, governor. Remember all the trouble your dad had with the anti-nuke activists on Long Island in the 1980s?  Fracking could be a similar quagmire for you, especially given your immodest aspirations to the Oval Office... Anyway, the guy you really gotta come to terms with is Josh Fox. Because this little film about the troubles with fracking in New York is pretty damn good."
