‘Oil on Ice’

All Saints’ Sustainable World Ministry will screen the film ‘Oil on Ice’

With the end of Republican congressional rule, it seems less likely that Alaska's Arctic National Wildlife refuge will be open to oil exploration and drilling any time soon, but that doesn't make the issue any less serious. Some are predicting the Democratic majority won't be able to pass an ANWR wilderness protection bill, much like the Republican majority was too slim to open the refuge to drilling.

Tonight, All Saints' Sustainable World Ministry, the Center for the Theatre of the Oppressed and the Light Bringer Project are co-sponsoring a free screening of the film "Oil on Ice," which explores the environmental consequences of drilling in the Alaskan wilderness. A community discussion will follow the screening, which begins at 7 p.m. at the Metro Gallery, 64 N. Raymond Ave., Pasadena.
