Groundswell Rising, Protecting Our Children's Air and Water
Friday, April 17th - Saturday, April 18th, 7:30pm

The Delaware River Keepers Network, Catskill Mountainkeeper, Food & Water Watch, Americans Against Fracking, Grassroots Environmental Education and Damascus Citizens Present:
Groundswell Rising, Protecting Our Children's Air and Water

Renard Cohen, 2014, 70 min.

Groundswell Rising documents the opposition from both sides of the political spectrum to the ubiquitous practice of fracking for natural gas, and the health and environmental reasons behind it. Groundswell Rising gives voice to ordinary folks engaged in a David and Goliath struggle against Big Oil and Gas. We meet parents, scientists, doctors, farmers and individuals across the political spectrum decrying the energy extraction process known as fracking that puts profits over people. This provocative documentary tracks a grassroots movement exposing dangers to clean air, water, and civil rights. Groundswell Rising shows how fracking has contaminated drinking water and jeopardized health and quality of life. Homeowners near wells suffer from respiratory ailments and property devaluation. Reina Ripple, of Southwest Pennsylvania Environmental Health Project, chronicles mounting ailments related to fracking. A former industry employee shows skin lesions and edema obtained while working with fracking waste. Grassroots efforts have achieved bans, moratoriums, and referendums on fracking. Stanford University Professor Mark Jacobson paves the way forward globally with his Solutions Project for 100% renewable energy.Transcending the genre of environmental film, Groundswell's passionate stories inspire and empower.

"Besides the incredible information on fracking's detriment to our health it is also a great look into what it is like to live in a town with fracking in the backyard. This film should be watched by everyone on the side of industry and those considering leasing their land to the gas companies. Plain and simply, it's the human side of this debate."
-- Mark Ruffalo, Actor, Activist
