Film: Gasland Part II
Tuesday, July 29th @ 6:30 PM -- Tenafly Library Friends Room
In this explosive follow-up to his Oscar®-nominated film GASLAND, filmmaker Josh Fox uses his trademark dark humor to take a deeper, broader look at the dangers of fracking, the controversial method of extracting natural gas and oil, now occurring on a global scale.
GASLAND PART II shows how the stakes have been raised on all sides in one of the most important environmental issues facing our nation today. The film demonstrates that the gas industry’s portrayal of natural gas as a clean and safe alternative to oil is a myth, and that fracked wells inevitably leak over time, contaminating water and air, hurting families, and endangering our climate. Finally the film looks at how the powerful oil and gas industry is, in Fox’s words, “contaminating our democracy.”
The Film will be followed by a discussion with a representative from
