It’s been quiet on the fracking front since Maryland’s General Assembly legislated a two-year fracking moratorium. Not for long. In an effort to educate Marylanders on what’s at stake, Chesapeake Climate Action Network and Food & Water Watch are hosting a free screening of the documentary, Groundswell Rising: Protecting our Children’s Water and Air. The film takes viewers into fracking communities and reveals the real-world issues of living with fracking. It’s sobering to say the least. The film will be screened on July 21 at Red Emma’s, followed by a discussion with one of the Pennsylvania landowners featured in the film, Craig Stevens. Also, get a peek at “Phase 2” in Maryland’s fight against fracking – an outright fracking ban similar to New York state’s.
