Earthquakes in Ohio?  Livestock dying inexplicably?  Water brown with contaminants your doctor isn't allowed to tell you about?  The public bared from "public" congressional hearings?  Who benefits?  Hint:  It's people -- The Corporate kind.

Please join IDP Activism to kick off Responsible Consumption Month with a screening of the award winning movie Gasland.

We'll have a Q&A session following to discuss the issues raised by fracking in New York and nationally.  And Popcorn!  We'll have lots of Popcorn!

The largest domestic natural gas drilling boom in history has swept across the United States.  The Halliburton developed drilling technology called "fracking" or hydraulic fracturing has unlocked a "Saudi Arabia of natural gas" just beneath us.  But is fracking safe?  When filmmaker Josh Fox is asked to lease his land for drilling, he embarks on a cross-country road trip to find the answer to this question. 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 absurd and astonishing revelations of a new country called Gasland.  Part verite` travelogue, part expose, part mystery, part bluegrass banjo meltdown, part showdown, Gasland is a crosscountry odyssey with unexpected humor, uncovering a trail of secrets, lies and contamination.

It is produced back up the

It is produced back up the wellbore along with the gas and oil. It is then separated at facilities, and is considered "produced water". The water is contaminated so it is re-injected with pumps, back into the ground via disposal wells. Companies can (and do) use oil for fracturing, but it can become very costly depending on the volume recovered. -using vine for marketing
