Those of you who know me know that I can be quite outspoken about the very serious environmental and long-term economic threat that hydrofracking poses to our pristine Finger Lakes region.
I know there are pros and cons around this controversial topic. My opinions have been formed through much reading as well as (more importantly) first-hand experience of the ravages caused by this opportunistic and unsustainable practice… long-term environmental and economic ravages that far outstrip the short-term monetary gains.
But you don’t have to take my word for it. For those who can make it, there will be a free screening of the documentary film GASLAND tonight (6:45pm) at the Fairport Public Library (click for details).
