Catskill Mountainkeeper and Catskill Art Space to present a screening and discussion of Michel Negroponte’s film Herd, on Saturday, November 11 at 5pm in the CAS River Gallery

A herd of shaggy Belted Galloway cattle is delivered to a neighboring pasture in the Catskills and instantly inspires a new film. The filmmaker’s growing fascination with the cows leads him to reflect on the modern idea of animal personhood. Michel Negroponte’s essay film is equal part rumination, observation and meditation. It reveals the cow’s essence and challenges us to think differently about our fellow living animal beings.

Join us on 11/11 for the local premier of this inspiring new film.

New report by Concerned Health Professionals of NY and Physicians for Social Responsibility shows the many negative health impacts of burning fracked gas in homes, illustrates urgent need for NY HEAT Act to get off gas and protect marginalized communities

"Children and families should not have indoor air pollutants piped into their homes from combustion heat and cooking appliances," said Dr. Kathleen Nolan, a pediatrician and president of the New York Chapter of Physicians for Social Responsibility, and Catskill Mountainkeeper's Senior Research Director. "We have worked for decades to reduce indoor exposures to second-hand tobacco smoke only to encounter very similar contaminants, such as benzene, formaldehyde, and carbon monoxide, being produced by the indoor burning of fuel oils and so-called natural gas. The NY HEAT Act phases in clean, odorless, safe forms of indoor energy and phases out the use of combustible contaminating oils and gasses. Rather than continue down the mistaken paths of the past, we should take the opportunity now to begin our transition to cleaner and healthier forms of indoor energy."
