Fracking Awareness Night at the Aero

Event: Tuesday, August 21 at 7:30pm

Seeking ways to squeeze a yield from depleted oil fields, natural gas producers are using a controversial new drilling method called hydraulic fracturing (aka “fracking”)—injecting high-pressure water and toxic chemicals into shale formations such as the Inglewood/Baldwin Hills Oil Fields to force out trapped natural gas. Is this technology safe? What are the regulations to protect our community’s health and safety?

Become a part of a fully-informed public! Fracking Awareness Night includes a screening of Josh Fox’s new 2012 “emergency short” The Sky Is Pink plus his Academy Award-nominated 2010 documentary GasLand, followed by a panel discussion of the issues framed in our local context (panelists TBA).

Aero Theatre (now American Cinematheque)
1328 Montana Avenue, Santa Monica
General Admission: $11, $9 senior or student with ID
