Film Screening - Groundswell Rising: Protecting our Children's Air & Water
Charles North | Website
This event occurred in the past.
The purpose of this film screening is to educate members of the Baltimore community about not only what fracking is but how the grassroots movement behind it has changed the conversation regarding natural gas drilling. This is especially important as we are pushing to pass a resolution through the Baltimore City Council supporting a statewide ban on fracking. Although no natural gas shale is currently under Baltimore, the city's water supplies are jeopardized by any drilling in the state. Fracking also poses tremendous threats to Maryland's economy and environment, as the risky drilling method can result in irreversible groundwater contamination.
