Sane Energy Project and Food Not Fracking present

A Panel Discussion and Book Signing: The Landscape of Fracking in New York; What’s Changed and What Hasn’t.

SUNDAY JANUARY 18th, 2015 at 4:00pm – 6:00pm                    BookCourt 163 Court St, Brooklyn, New York 11201 

The announcement that DEC will prohibit fracking in NYS may lead some to believe that now we’re “safe.” However, pipelines, compressor stations, storage caverns and LNG facilities have been and remain the current threat. “The Real Cost of Fracking” authors, Michelle Bamberger and Robert Oswald, will demonstrate why such infrastructure may actually be WORSE than drilling in its health impacts on humans, animals, and our food shed.

“You Are Here,” a new online mapping tool, will demonstrate how New York is already being fracked in every way BUT the drilling. Local activists join a panel discussion about current infrastructure projects and what is being done to stop them.

Light refreshments will be served. FREE. 4-6pm, Sunday, January 18th at the beloved independent Brooklyn bookstore, Bookcourt. (F/G train to Bergen, most trains to Jay Street or Borough Hall).

Cosponsors: Chefs for Marcellus, The Baum Forum, Green Faith, Zen Center, 350 NYCUnited for Action, The Green Advocate, Beloved Earth Community of Riverside Church, Brooklyn For Peace, The Mother’s Project, All Our Energy, System Change not Climate Change, and Shut Down Indian Point Now.

* BookCourt is wheelchair accessible.
