[i][b]There is an energy revolution taking place in America due to shale gas and renewables. It can serve to revive the American Dream and it’s already doing so, but the challenge is overcoming a lack of appreciation for the industry driven by a lack of understanding.[/b][/i]
Last night, at Lackawanna College in Scranton, Pennsylvania, David Holt of the Consumer Energy Alliance and three other speakers delivered a powerful message about the need to engender more understanding of the energy industry. The speakers focused on a common theme; what the energy industry it’s doing for America already and what it can do, if we start making better connections between producers, consumers, suppliers and, above all, educators.
The event was the third in a series of educational events at Lackawanna College, all sponsored by Cabot Oil & Gas. It was titled “The Education of Shale” but the program was about energy (all of it, not just shale gas), why the energy revolution is so poorly appreciated and what to do about that to help Americans understand the tremendous advantages and opportunities in front of them.
David Holt is President of the Consumers Energy Alliance (CEA) and spoke first. CEA prides itself on being “the voice of the energy consumer.” it works from a membership base that includes energy consumers ranging from airlines to steel and everything between. There are consumer members from agribusiness, manufacturing, restaurant and trucking industries, not to mention 400,000 individuals. Academia is also involved along with energy producers from biofuels, electric, gas, nuclear, oil, solar, wind and other sectors. The mission of the group is to promote affordable and reliable energy development across all sectors by encouraging dialogue among them and with consumers and educators.
