350 Central Colorado is presenting another of its public environmental education films next Tuesday (Sept. 29) in Salida.
** Dear Governor Hickenlooper**, a film about the dangers of hydraulic fracturing, or fracking, will be shown on Monday, Sept. 29th at 6:00 p.m. at the First Presbyterian Church 7 Poncha Blvd., in Salida, at the intersection of Third St., near the Safeway Store.
The film is a series of Colorado-produced segments designed to educate people on the toxic chemicals, huge water use and air and water contamination associated with fracking from those who are being most impacted.
It is being shown ahead of the October 5th "Stop the Frack Attack" Hall of Shame March and Rally planned in Denver.
Directed by Stash Wislocki, **Dear Governor Hickenlooper** is a compilation of film vignettes done by Colorado creatives involving state filmmakers, farmers, skiers, activists and concerned citizens and uses both factual science and emotional appeal to highlight why many view fracking as an unacceptable risk to the air and water in Colorado. It also examines the opportunities for renewable energy growth in the state and nation.
A discussion period will follow the film. Refreshments will be available and a free will donation of $5 is suggested.
