Dear President Obama is a film
by ILCW member Jon Bowermaster (USA) Fellow
In it fracking, or the extraction of natural gas by drilling deep into the earth and releasing the gas by pumping water, sand, and chemicals at high pressure into the rock below, has come under attack for causing pollution of air, underground water supplies and even earthquakes. Once thought a clean alternative in extracting fossil fuels, the reality points to fracking as being hard on the environment. Bowermaster is showing the film across the US with Q&A sessions after the screening. The purpose is to convince President Obama to join the anti-drilling majority and call for fossil fuels to be left in the ground.
