See Triple Divide on Feb 27 in Ithaca

This sounds good.

Mark your calendars!

On Thursday, February 27, investigative reporters from Public Herald, Joshua Pribanic and Melissa Troutman, will screen their feature-length documentary concerning environmental and health impacts from shale gas extraction in PA since 2007. Triple Divide is a culmination of 12 months of investigations and includes expert testimony. Pribanic and Troutman will lead a discussion and answer questions following the film.

This event is free, and will be held starting at 7 PM at the Unitarian Church in Ithaca, 306 North Aurora Street. The film is co-sponsored by the FracTracker Alliance, the Cayuga Lake Watershed Network, and the Social Justice Council of the First Unitarian Society of Ithaca.

Triple Divide has been hailed as “the best documentary on fracking to date”.

“Neither partisan nor hyperbolic, Triple Divide is an honest look at an industry that deserves more scrutiny. The film explores and uncovers the haphazard way in which natural gas has been exploited in Pennsylvania, causing significant damage to formerly-pristine waterways. It clearly illustrates through painstaking investigative journalism how current safety measures and industry standards have proven entirely inadequate. I highly recommend this film to anyone who lives in the immediate area of hydraulic natural gas fracking, as well as those downstream from a drilling site.” – Andrew Riedy, Security Policy (Washington, D.C.)
