(Newser) – Apparently, protesting natural gas drilling is enough to land you on the terror advisory list, as Mark Ruffalo found out the hard way. The actor was placed on the watch list by Pennsylvania’s Office of Homeland Security after organizing screenings for Gasland, a documentary about drilling, the San Francisco Chronicle reports. His reaction? “Pretty f***in’ funny,” he tells GQ. Click here to watch a Gasland trailer.

If Mark is on the list then its most likely that many more of us who are in strong aggreement that Fracking should never happen anywhere. Although I have never met Mr. Ruffalo - he is a neighbor and I can completely appreciate everything he stands for and am gratefull that someone who is high profile and a total class act cares about this as much as I do. For all those people out there who have not seen the movie Gasland then you should because it could be your backyard someday, your water that lights on fire, your family, pets, garden that is contaminated with dangerous chemicals that they pump in the ground to get the gas out. I pray that I never look out my front window and see a gas drill. They want to take some of the most beautiful countryside and damage it for ever. I will forever be grateful to him for taking such a strong stance on this. Thanks Mark.

The very people who are responsible for causing such severe and long time damage to our environment should be on the terror watch list. I get it yes it is f***king funny! The companys discussed in Gasland are the ones that are putting people in danger but Mark Ruffalo is on the terror watch list. That is down right halarious!
