If you thought it was impossible to set tap water on fire, think again.

In Gasland, an Oscar-nominated documentary, director Josh Fox journeys across America to examine the effects of natural-gas drilling—from poisoned water sources to kitchen sinks that burst into flames to unhealthy animals and people. Is hydraulic fracting a viable alternative to the country's dwindling energy resources, or, everything considered, do its potential harmful consequences outweigh any positives? Should the US—or any country—be investing in fossil fuels at a time when the results of climate change are becoming more and more ominous?

Fox's film raises these and many more probing questions. Discussion following the showing will be led by Vinnie Bacon, Chair of the Southern Alameda chapter of the Sierra Club and a former candidate for Fremont City Council.
