"Fracking the Social Contract" 

When: Wed., Nov. 14, 7 p.m. 2012
Price: Free

In El Paso County, and even within Colorado Springs city limits, it's quite possible that oil-and-gas types will soon be drilling wells deep into the ground; sending water, sand and undisclosed chemicals into those wells at high pressure; and cracking shale to free some natural gas. What's the worst that could happen? Filmmaker Josh Fox has spent years trying to answer that question, first for 2010's Oscar-nominated documentary Gasland, and now for Gasland 2, due out soon. (While you're waiting, catch The Sky Is Pink, Fox's short film on fracking in New York, at He'll be speaking at Cornerstone Arts Center (825 N. Cascade Ave.,, free) at 7 tonight, and chances are you'll be treated better there than Fox was on Capitol Hill in February, when he was arrested while trying to tape a committee hearing. — Kirk Woundy
