Film: Gasland Part II, with guest speakers

When: Friday, November 22 2013 @ 07:00 PM - - 10:00PM
Where: San Jose Peace and Justice Center
48 S. Seventh St.
San Jose, CA 95112
Description: With guest speakers Lance Simmens, California State Director of Gasland Grassroots, and Bill Hunter of Aromas Cares. GASLAND PART II, which premiered at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival, shows how the stakes have been raised on all sides in one of the most important environmental issues facing our nation today. The film argues 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 the earth’s climate with the potent greenhouse gas, methane. In addition the film looks at how the powerful oil and gas industries are in Fox's words "contaminating our democracy".
