Why: See Oscar-nominated GASLAND on Oscar Day!


“The largest domestic natural gas drilling boom in history has swept across the United States. The Halliburton-developed drilling technology of “fracking” or hydraulic fracturing has unlocked a “Saudia Arabia of natural gas” just beneath us. But is fracking safe? When filmmaker Josh Fox is asked to lease his land for drilling, he embarks on a cross-country odyssey uncovering a trail of secrets, lies and contamination. A recently drilled nearby Pennsylvania town reports that residents are able to light their drinking water on fire. This is just one of the many absurd and astonishing revelations of a new country called GASLAND. Part travelogue, part expose, part mystery, part bluegrass banjo meltdown, part showdown.”

More Why:  Invitation from Save Some Green

“Meet other earth conscious film enthusiasts. Show off your snazziest environmentally-sound evening-wear on our exclusive green carpet. Or show up just to see what everybody else is wearing.”

Invitation from Protecting Our Waters:  Oscar win or lose, GASLAND exposes big corporations playing fast and loose with public health.  Time for action. Sign letters to DRBC and grab a pile to distribute.  Governor Corbett just signed away our state forests.  Alert your network, and mobilize for the next step.
