The Truth behind the Dash for Gas
Documentary at The Savoy Theatre: Tuesday, 13 May at 7.30
FRACKING – vital energy source or eco disaster?
Fracking is getting nearer – areas already licensed include Magor, Caldicot and parts of Newport. The Tories are all in favour of this new source of energy, to the point that they are willing to allow the fracking companies to drill under your home without your permission – but should you let them?
The Savoy Theatre is showing The Truth behind the Dash for Gas for one night only – Tuesday, 13 May at 7.30. The documentary was commissioned by the Somerset Fracking Awareness Campaign, and investigates the environmental and health issues associated with the process, the chemicals that are used, the amount of water required. UK Methane needs to drill 2000 wells in Somerset alone to produce the amount of gas they claim to their shareholders.
The evening will include a discussion led by Andy Chyba, a geologist who gave evidence at the Vale of Glamorgan public enquiry.
