Greens N Grains of Egg Harbor Screens “GasLand”

Greens N Grains will be screening Josh Fox’s film GasLand, a 2011 Oscar-nominated documentary, on Feb. 24 at 7 pm.

In the film, Fox sets out to examine the harmful effects of natural gas drilling. He explores hydraulic fracturing or “fracking,” the process by which natural gas and oil is extracted from the ground, and examines everything from poisoned water resources to kitchen sink taps that burst into flame to unhealthy animals and people.

The film is blurring the boundaries between cinema and a social movement, as it is enraging the fossil-fuel lobby and has Hollywood spinning. The natural gas industry has registered a complaint with the Academy of Motion Pictures and Sciences claiming that a wealth of errors should render the film ineligible for best documentary feature.

National Wildlife Federation reporter Megan Blevins said, “Last time I checked, people’s tap water lighting on fire greatly impacts the health and welfare of humans, wildlife and environment. Why is this so hard for some to believe?”
