Join us for dinner and a documentary screening! Karma Asian is very vegan-friendly with delicious food, and centrally located. Dinner at 5:00, then we're going just down the street to the Skylark Lounge, 140 S. Broadway, for a free screening at 6:30 of Gasland 2, a documentary about fracking. Feel free to come for just the dinner or just the screening. The Colorado state ballot campaign on fracking will be discussed after the screening.
In this explosive follow-up to his Oscar®-nominated film GASLAND, filmmaker Josh Fox uses his trademark dark humor to take a deeper, broader look at the dangers of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, the controversial method of extracting natural gas and oil, now occurring on a global level (in 32 countries worldwide).
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.
