The film once again comes to Dallas, while the city of Dallas begins to create a gas drilling task force with a goal of making recommendations to the city council to re write the current gas ordinance. Questions about the effect of shale gas drilling on our environment continue to make news everyday. This film shows one man’s quest to find exactly what is happening across the US in it’s search for alternative energy supplies. Portions of the film were filmed in the Dallas Fort Worth area and features EPA region 6 administrator Al Armendariz.
This event is also being supported by the following Dallas environmental citizen groups:
