Gasland screening at the Bloom Collective this Saturday 4/9

April 5, 2011

The Bloom Collective is hosting a public screening of the award winning documentary film Gasland this Saturday 3pm. Gasland was nominated for an Oscar for best documentary and exposes the practice of what is called fracking.

US energy companies are extracting natural gas through a process called fracking. They drill holes, detonate explosives underground to create cracks and send a toxic chemical/water mix into the holes creating devastating results for anyone who lives nearby. Gasland humanizes the victims of this practice and unwraps the devious web of politicians and corporations that have conspired to make this happen—even right here in Michigan.

Following the film there will be a discussion. People are invited to bring food and there is a suggested donation of $3.
