Will the boom in hydrofracking natural gas drilling contaminate our water supply?
Natural gas is often considered the “lesser of evils” in energy resources because it burns cleaner and is in plentiful supply. But a new process in gas drilling to extract those plentiful supplies—a process called hydrofracking or “fracking” raises concerns about health and environmental risks.
“Gasland: the Movie” is the Oscar-nominated documentary by Josh Fox about the current boom in gas extraction, and the environmental dangers it poses. Come see this movie and learn about “fracking” and what you can do about it.
