Gasland Filmmaker Josh Fox Comes to Phoenixville: Don’t Miss This Event!

Filmmaker Josh Fox of the critically acclaimed and Oscar nominated documentary, “Gasland”, comes to Franklin Commons Wednesday September 7that 6:00 pm.  The public is invited to join Fox and legislators for an important discussion regarding the dangers of hydraulic fracturing (“fracking.”)

Fracking is a means of natural gas extraction that involves millions of gallons of water, sand, and undisclosed chemicals being injected under high pressure into the ground. 205,000-935,000 pounds of chemicals are used per frack per well and scientists have identified many carcinogens, including benzene, in gas drilling waste.

The event at Franklin Commons in Phoenixville, PA will begin at 6:00 p.m. and include dinner, BYO drinks, a panel discussion with Fox and legislators, followed by a Q & A session and a screening of “Gasland.”

Tickets are just $35. and all proceeds benefit Protecting Our Waters, a Philadelphia-based grassroots alliance committed to protecting the Delaware River Basin, the state of Pennsylvania, and our region from unconventional gas drilling and other threats to our drinking water, environment, and public health.

Act quickly as seating is limited! Tickets may be ordered now via email to lisa@consultcts.com.

More on Gasland from the official website : “When filmmaker Josh Fox is asked to lease his land for drilling, he embarks on a cross-country odyssey uncovering a trail of secrets, lies and contamination. A recently drilled nearby Pennsylvania town 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.”

  1. Philly 2nd most DIRTIEST AMERICAN CITY, Travel+Leisure, June 2011.
    Citizens/Conf. Attendees, Including Mr. FOX, should protest the indifferently run, anti-Green cesspool Mayer Nutter, Police Chief Ramsey and others run, in violation of state and federal environmental laws.
