Gasland II Screening at Ommegang

Otsego 2000 and Brewery Ommegang

are pleased to be able to show

Gasland II

at Café Ommegang on Tuesday, July 16th at 7 pm

GASLAND PART II, which premiered at the 2013 Tribeca Film Festival, shows how the stakes have been raised on all sides in one of the most important environmental issues facing our nation today. The film argues that the gas industry’s portrayal of natural gas as a clean and safe alternative to oil is a myth and that fracked wells inevitably leak over time, contaminating water and air, hurting families, and endangering the earth’s climate with the potent greenhouse gas, methane. In addition the film looks at how the powerful oil and gas industries are in Fox’s words “contaminating our democracy”.

The Café will be offering a limited menu up until the start of the film at 7 pm, and will be serving beer and other beverages throughout the evening.
