Watch Rural Impact!

Rural Impact! What to Expect from the Gas Industry and How to Address It is a documentary exploring the impacts of natural gas development in Colorado on communities, the environment and public health. Directed by Aurielle Andhara and Bill Sitkin, the film includes in-depth interviews with county officials, scientists and residents and strives to find a balance between the needs of the environment and the demands of a society reliant on non-renewable energy resources.

Shaleshock organized a public screening and discussion of Rural Impact! on October 9th 2008 at the Women’s Community Building in Ithaca, but you can watch the film in six parts via YouTube below.
