AFTER THE GAS RUSH (PART 1) opens with an eye-catching aerial view of shale gas drilling sites across Pennsylvania's farmland, the battleground of shale gas drilling. We take viewers to a heated public debate where supporters of the industry face off with people fiercely against natural gas drilling near their homes. It's at this meeting we meet working mom turned anti-fracking activist, Dr. Dorothy Bassett. Bassett is at the forefront of the anti-fracking movement engulfing Pennsylvania. Journey OnEarth follows correspondent Roshini Thinakaran, a National Geographic Emerging Explorer, as she reports about the people most impacted by pollution, oil spills, toxic chemicals, and communities coping with climate change across the country.
