As Delaware and our surrounding states continue the battle to keep fracking out of the Delaware River Basin and fracking waste out of our waterways, director Josh Fox has released his second film on the dangerous natural gas drilling practice: GASLAND Part II. Josh will be here in in our region on June 15th for 2 screenings of his new film which focuses on the people who are suffering, the politics of shale, the domination of mainstream media by the industry, the science behind it all and what we can do to get off of polluting fossil fuels and on to renewable, sustainable and truly clean energy sources before we reach climate collapse.
We (along with NJ Sierra Club and Delaware Riverkeeper) will be holding the screenings at 4pm and 7pm at the State Museum in Trenton, just miles from the offices of the Delaware River Basin Commission, the federal agency that could allow fracking to move forward in our region! GASLAND has been a major motivating force and helped raise public awareness about the devastation fracking and gas drilling is bringing to communities. You will not want to miss the sequel!
Gas extraction and its damaging infrastructure and toxic waste is impacting shale gas frontline communities but also places like Delaware, New Jersey and Philadelphia where waste is being dumped, pipelines and processing facilities are being built and radioactive shale gas is being peddled. The screening is free but we are asking folks to RSVP now for the 4pm and 7pm events as space is limited. Donations will be graciously accepted at the event to help cover venue costs.
