Group screens drilling documentary

By
April 13, 2011 |

Big Screen Cinema, in partnership with Democracy for America, will present a screening of “Gasland” at 7 p.m. Thursday in the Blanchard Room of the Stephens Branch Library, 315 E. 14th St. in Davis.

This Academy Award-nominated documentary film looks into the largest domestic natural gas drilling boom in history. The Halliburton-developed drilling technology being used in this effort, called hydraulic fracturing or “fracking,” has unlocked a “Saudia Arabia of natural gas.” Unfortunately, along with the natural gas, the process is also causing a tremendous release of methane into the atmosphere.

In the documentary, after filmmaker Josh Fox is asked to lease his land for drilling, he embarks on a cross-country road trip to find the answer to the question,“Is fracking safe?” A nearby Pennsylvania town which was recently drilled reports that residents are able to light their drinking water on fire. This is just one of the many  revelations of a new country now known as “Gasland.”
