The gas pockets in North Carolina have been considered for development after the BP oil spill, after other states have had successes and failures with fracking, and after the documentary Gasland raised concerns about the potential harmful effects. With that in mind a study was commissioned to investigate the impacts that introducing this industry into North Carolina would have. There have been 2 meetings to discuss the findings of the study and to listen to public opinion.
This Thursday (4/26), a local independent movie theater, Aperture Cinema, will be showing “Split Estate” at 7:30pm. The film examines the practice of fracking. After the movie there will be a presentation on how North Carolina will specifically be impacted, the current and proposed regulations, and how residents can get involved. Admission is free.
