As the worlds population soars, humankind must keep digging deeper and deeper down for the earths natural resources to feed our voracious appetite for energy fighting wars over diminishing supplies of water, oil, and coal. But it is not only the earth itself that is rapidly changing and disappearing: as we excavate resources in ever-expanding areas, small communities are being flattened, taking with them our worlds diverse cultures, traditions, and lives.
Through a complex human story that cuts across environment, economics, public policy, and culture, the story of Beverly May and Terry Ratliff reveals the devastating impact of our energy consumption against an explosive backdrop: Appalachias centuries-old struggle over the black rock that fuels our planet.
The venue for the Houston Green Film Series is the Rice Media Center, 2030 University Blvd, near Stockton and University.
Doors open at 6:30pm for conversation, networking, and a light meal. The screening starts at 7:00pm.
A light dinner will be served, courtesy of Dr. Pat Speck and Dry Bones Cafe. The film is free to the public, though donations are suggested and kindly appreciated.
