The following has come to my attention:
*This Friday, August 31, 6:30 PM- 8:30: Showing of the Movie “Gasland”
A brief planning meeting will follow the showing
One BIG problem: This movie is full of lies!
This site debunks numerous sections of the movie with facts and more links
This site also debunks the movie point by point with even more links:
The New York Times even issued a similar article:
Then there is this short video:
Obama’s Science Advisor agrees with experts: Fracking has never contaminated drinking water
Even MSNBC takes the filmmaker John Fox to task:
The reason this movie was made is in the MSNBC clip: Some people in this country want to end fossil fuels. They DO NOT want us to use our natural resources. We supposedly can run everything on wind and solar energy, or import fossil fuels from other countries.
This film is being shown in Bloomington because the Mclean County Land Use Committee is meeting on September 6th to discuss special use permit rules to make fracking easier in the county. It is obviously an attempt to stop the discussion by stirring citizens up with fraudulently data.
*Thursday, September 6, 4:45 PM Land Use Committee Meeting
*IPA will attend wearing “No fracking” stickers
Meet at 4:30 in the County Board Meeting RoomPlease RSVP: (309) 827-9627
This information needs to be given to Holy Trinity and the McLean County Land Use Committee if you are tired of being held hostage to environmentalists.
The organizer’s phone number has been listed twice. Maybe whoever it is doesn’t know the facts. Maybe they do. Now you do too.
