We will discuss Fracking, Iraq and Ebola - what could be more fun!!?? We are just a light-hearted bunch of people.
We will watch a documentary entitled "Triple Divide", which talks about what is happening to people who live near fracking well in Pennsylvania, and shows how far away this polluted water travels - as far as some parts of Missouri, and beyond.
“It’s hard to imagine anyone could have a fully-informed opinion about fracking without seeing Triple Divide,” said Jed Thorp, Conservation Manager at the Sierra Club, Ohio Chapter. “The filmmakers use cold hard facts and first-hand accounts to show how this industry is impacting real people.”
Actor Mark Ruffalo co-narrates this 18-month cradle-to-grave fracking investigation by Public Herald, an investigative news nonprofit co-founded by journalists Joshua Pribanic and Melissa Troutman. Triple Divide features never before seen interviews with industry giants and advocates, exclusive reports with impacted landowners, uncovered state documents, and expert testimonies.
It's title represents one of only four Triple Continental Divides in North America, a place that provides drinking water to millions of Americans, signaling to the audience that everything, and everyone, is downstream from shale gas extraction
