'GasLand 2: The Dangers of Hydraulic Fracking'
Glastonbury - posted Jan, 14 2014
GLASTONBURY - Come for a bowl of soup with bread and stay for the Oscar-nominated film, "GasLand 2." This movie takes a broader look at the dangers of hydraulic fracking, the controversial method of extracting natural gas and oil that is now occurring on a global scale. 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. "GasLand 2: The Dangers of Hydraulic Fracking," will be shown on Friday, Jan. 24 at the CT Audubon Society Center, 1361 Main St., Glastonbury. Come at 6 p.m. for supper, followed by the movie at 7 p.m. Call 860-633-8402 to reserve a seat. Admission is $5 for soup/bread. The movie is free. Donations to offset the cost of the event are greatly appreciated. Sponsored by Whole Foods.
