Fracking documentary to be screened in Sylva

Written by 

A documentary about natural gas “fracking” in America, “Gasland Part 2,” will be screened in Sylva on Saturday, March 22, at the Jackson County Public Library.

A presentation on fracking will be held at 6:30 p.m. by Clean Water for North Carolina, with the film starting at 7 p.m.

Last year, the N.C. legislature sanctioned a feasibility study on natural gas extraction in the mountains, prompting attention from state and regional environmental groups.

The free screening is being sponsored by The Canary Coalition and www.occupywnc. 828.631.3447 or www.canarycoalition.org.
