As part of the UPSN sustainability advocacy mission, members attended a screening of Gasland 2, directed by Josh Cox on January 30, 2014 hosted by the CSUN Insitute for Sustainability. The film showcased shocking footage of the effects of hydraulic fracturing and the panel following the screening discussed how fracking is truly knocking at our back door as Southern California residents. Fracking is an extremely dangerous practice with long term, permanent health and environmental implications. UPSN supports the call for a moratorium on fracking in Los Angeles proposed by Council members Koretz and Bonin and will be involved with the movement to “BAN FRACKING NOW” in the future.
