Portions of the film Gasland will be shown at Elon Law School on Thursday 6/23, followed by a discussion of fracking in North Carolina, including remarks by Pricey Harrison. The event is free and open to the public.
Here's some fact-checking on claims and counterclaims about the movie. I don't think Gasland is the last word on the subject. Neither is, "we need domestic sources of energy, and the industry says fracking is completely safe."
Meanwhile, public scrutiny of fracking is yielding some results: "The natural-gas industry, bowing to longtime pressure, will disclose more information about the chemicals it uses in the controversial process of hydraulic fracturing."
