Triple Divide: Film Screening and Discussion

Triple Divide is a documentary film by Joshua Pribanic and Melissa Troutman that chronicles the true nature of hydraulic natural gas fracking in north central Pennsylvania.

The film uses scientific evidence and first-hand interviews to examine the impacts of fracking on the local environment, human health, and the multitude of exceptional value riverways that share collective headwaters near the fracking zone.

This film uncovers the haphazard way that natural gas has been exploited in Pennsylvania and clearly illustrates through painstaking investigative journalism how current safety measures and industry standards are entirely inadequate.

Hailed as the "very best documentary on the hazards of fracking in our environment," Triple Divide is a must see for anyone who wants to learn more about sustainable energy options.
