Documentary film “Gasland” on "fracking" free showing in the Northwest
Free showings of the award-winning documentary film “Gasland” on "fracking" or hydraulic fracturing will be held in the North West (Derry, Letterkenny and Inishowen) in January and early February.
Fracking (Hydraulic Fracturing of rock) is a method used to extract natural gas from the ground. The process involves pumping millions of gallons of water, mixed with toxic chemicals, thousands of feet deep into the ground.
In Ireland, presently licenses for exploration have been issued for the Lough Allen Basin, Clare Basin, Central Larne-Lough Neagh Basin, Rathlin Basin and Rathlin Island in the Republic and NI.
There is no regulation in existence that covers this extraction method, and there has been no research published into the potential consequences of such activity here.
Responding to concerns about the potential health and environmental effects of fracking, Roscommon and Leitrim County Councils and the NI Assembly have recently passed motions for a moratorium on further exploration until the completion of environmental impact surveys. These motions are not legally binding.
Gasland is a documentary on the dangers to health and the environmental destruction caused by 'fracking', a harmful process to extract gas under pressure in a desperate attempt to prolong the addiction to oil and gas on which society has become so dependent, and which is not sustainable.
Come and inform yourself!
