The Daily Show was a bit gassy this week as they welcomed filmmaker Josh Fox.

Fox is the director of the HBO documentary Gasland — a film that exposes how hydraulic fracturing, a new method of drilling for natural gas, has caused toxic chemicals to enter the drinking water supply.

During the segment, Josh points out that we’re currently in a “natural gas drilling boom,” prompting Jon Stewart to sardonically reply, “Well, it’s natural gas, so it’s actually the healthy gas. They actually sell it in whole foods. It’s so tasty, this gas.”

Long story short, this natural gas drilling business is causing a lot of health and environmental problems (read: drinking water that’s flammable).
