House Democrats to hold Marcellus Shale hearing Thursday in York
Full story: York Dispatch
If anybody could-would kill a goose that lays a golden egg it would be Eugene. (I didnt print his last name because he likes seeing it so much)
What good is such a hearing?
What purpose does it serve?
Without citizen input------the only ones who will put their two cents in are the drillers and those who assist them.
Since an Environmental Impact Study has never been done, the drilling is considered by the legislators as fait accompli ....and the ultimate long-term risk isn't even in the equation. Idiots.
We need a moratorium and an EnvironmentalImpactStudy.
Oh yeah.. the 'Marcellus Shale Advisory Commission'..
13 members who donated $1.4 Million to Corbett and who come directly from the Oil and Gas Industry. Another 12 who gave $562,000 and 1 who is the son of a $300,000 donor. The other 4 represent conservation groups. There are NO representatives from the Department of Health.
'Marcellus Shale Creates Jobs'
Yes, but the highest-paying jobs go to out of state workers; because the Native PA workers don't have the training or skills.
'Marcellus Shale Gas will end our dependance on foreign oil'
Not when the gas leases are being sold to companies owned by China, Korea, the UK and Norway.
