As previously reported (http://blnnews.com/2012/08/30/fracking-under-attack-with-fraud-in-mclean-county/) (http://blnnews.com/2013/01/23/fracknation-exposed-the-energy-haters/) some people will do anything, including lie, to stop the use of fossil fuels. We are all affected because cheap energy is essential to the economy of the United States. Double gas prices have put a lid on potential economic development when families have fewer discretionary dollars. Cheap natural gas collected by fracking has been the one bright spot that the EPA hasn’t been able to stop. Some people won’t quit trying though.
Now the roadshow is coming to Normal:
Gasland II, National Premiere with Director Josh Fox
Join us for the Progressive Event of the Year! Josh Fox, filmmaker of Gasland, is coming to Normal, IL. He is kicking off his national debut of Gasland II at the Normal Theater on Monday, May 20, 2013.
Two years ago, Josh Fox introduced us to hydraulic fracturing with his Oscar®nominated exposé Gasland. Now this once-touted energy source has become a widely discussed, contentious topic. In his follow-up, Fox reveals the extreme circumstances facing those affected by fracking, from earthquakes to the use of federal anti-terror psycpsychological operations tactics. Gasland Part II is the definitive proof that issues raised by fracking cannot be ignored for long.
Meet filmmaker Josh Fox who will lead a discussion session after the movie.

Where does The Ecology Action Center get at least part of their funding?
Right. From you. Your tax dollars are being used to spread lies and end cheap energy. Any surprise the premier is in Normal? What you you going to do about it?
