(or maybe yes?) A Panel on Sustainable Agriculture hosted by the Teen Science Café.
Friday March 6, 2015 – Dexter Dover Area Towns in Transition (DDATT) will sponsor the two-hour long film “Gasland 2” at the Abbott Memorial Library in Dexter at 6 PM as part of its ongoing First Friday free movie sessions, followed by vibrant public discussion.
Over the past decade there has been a rush for oil and natural gas across America using the controversial drilling method of hydraulic fracturing, or “fracking”. The new techniques, technologies, and chemicals used are more intensive and riskier than conventional oil and gas drilling.
“Gasland 2” argues that the gas industry is using its wealth and power to influence government policy on fracking, while buying the silence of countless American homeowners forced to move out of their longtime homes because their water has become too polluted to drink.
Even though Maine itself does not sit above natural gas fields, the implications of fracking elsewhere in the Northeast and our continued dependence on all forms of fossil fuel use are important to Central Maine residents. DDATT’s mission is to inform ourselves on how our energy choices affect our environmental, political, and economic lives. “Gasland 2” examines these issues. Please join your neighbors in Dexter on March 6th to learn about our options. For more information on DDATT and future events, email email@example.com to get on email list, or call 2774221 or 924-3836.
