Denver and Boulder Meetings: David Ray Griffin: “9/11: Why Do Bill Moyers and Robert Parry Accept Miracles?” Grand Junction: “Gasland”: February 2012

Scroll down for announcements of events by other organizations, with a few corrections.

This month Colorado 9/11 Visibility is proud to present Dr. David Ray Griffin’s brilliant challenge to the progressive media:  9/11: Why Do Bill Moyers and Robert Parry Accept Miracles? (1 hour, 15 minutes)

Hosted by philosopher, educator, activist, and author Dr. Richard Curtis, Professor Griffin explores at Town Hall in Seattle why some of the best independent journalists in America accept without question the official conspiracy theories put forth by the 9/11 Commission and NIST (National Institute of Standards and Technology) in their investigations of the tragic events of September 11, 2001.
Using Bill Moyers and Robert Parry as examples of journalists who have previously demonstrated notable courage, objectivity, and a willingness to examine crucial events in depth, rather than simply accepting a single-minded source, Dr. Griffin challenges their current disregard of the overwhelming scientific evidence uncovered by the growing number of professionals openly supporting the 9/11 Truth Movement and calling for a proper investigation.

Dr. Griffin explains how careful examination of the official conspiracy theories regarding the unprecedented collapse of the three tallest World Trade Center buildings reveals contradictions and violations of the laws of physics, which he rightly points out as being impossible, and therefore would require “miracles” to achieve, unless carried out by the use of explosive, controlled demolition techniques.

Please join us and bring a friend!  This is an excellent film for your friends who are new to this issue as well as for those who are informed yet perplexed by the reaction of some of our media’s best journalists.

Bio: Dr. David Ray Griffin, Emeritus Professor of Theology and Philosophy of Religion at Claremont School of Theology and Claremont Graduate University, is one of the world’s most influential proponents of the 9/11 Truth Movement and author of 11 books questioning the official accounts of the events of September 11, 2001.

2) Fracking: Presentation by Experts–Boulder

Fracking & Community Rights
When: Friday, February 24, 2012, 7:00 – 9:30 PM

Where: Boulder County Democratic Platform HQ: 1725 B Walnut, Boulder

Fracking, or hydraulic fracturing, has become one of the most disturbing issues in the news today. The largest domestic natural gas drilling boom in history has swept across the United States and is coming to a place near you in Boulder County. The Halliburton-developed drilling technology has unlocked a “Saudia Arabia of natural gas” just beneath us. We have been “told” that we can hold fracking operations accountable; that this is a clean and safe technology; that it will give us jobs in Colorado; and that it will free us from dependence on foreign oil and fill our energy needs for decades to come.

But is fracking safe? What does the record tell us from operations in Colorado and across the nation? What are your neighbors experiencing when they find rigs erected next to them in as little as four days? Did you know that unless you own your mineral rights, you have no control of the land beneath your feet? Did you think this couldn’t happen here? What about your right to clear air? What about your right to clean water? What about your health?

Join scientists Shane Davis, Phil Doe, and Wes Wilson, neighbors, and community-rights activists affected by and working together to prevent further devastation to their homes and lives from oil and gas company practices throughout our state and right here in the backyards of Boulder County.      FREE
