“Dear President Obama: The Clean Energy Revolution is Now”

Location: Robert Down Elementary School
485 Pine Ave., Pacific Grove
Date: TUESDAY, APRIL 26, 7 pm

Screening and discussion with filmmaker Jon Bowermaster, presenting in Pacific Grove, at one of only 3 film presentations in California before general release. Jon Bowermaster is a noted oceans expert, award-winning journalist, author, adventurer and six-time grantee of the National Geographic Expeditions Council.

“Dear President Obama: The Clean Energy Revolution is Now” is a direct appeal to the President – and to all elected officials – to carefully consider the growing evidence proving that hydraulic fracturing for oil and gas is hardly the path to energy independence that many promote.

The film takes a cross-country look at fracking, highlighting its variety of contamination, the stories of its victims and the false promise of an economic boom, with a focus on energy solutions that would allow us to proceed towards an energy future that does not rely on yet another dirty fossil fuel extraction process.

Interviews with scientists, economists, geologists and whistle-blowers will provide the core information we hope will convince the current President and those that will follow to join the “anti-fracking” majority that is growing across the United States.
