Friends!

Join us in the screening of the exciting film Gasland, as part of Energy Week Boston!

The recent discovery of a boom of natural gas, which can be accessed by "hydraulic fracturing" of shale, has seemed a blessing for a country struggling with oil at $4/gallon. But as with all energy, there is a larger cost.

When filmmaker Josh Fox received a letter asking him to lease his land for natural gas drilling, he went on a cross-country journey to research how natural gas affects our nation. What he found were secrets surrounding the hydraulic fracturing, or "fracking," process, and no regulation of contamination. The tagline of the film, "Can you light your water on fire?", comes from residents in areas where cross-contamination of water supplies has occurred. This is just one of the jaw-dropping findings that Fox encounters.

This movie is riveting and moving; a great way to introduce a friend to the issue, or to learn more yourself. Mass Energy's Executive Director and long-time clean energy advocate/economist, Larry Chretien, will speak and moderate a short discussion on natural gas before the film. Join us for some thoughts about our energy future.
