A star for the OP...and good for Corbett (and the other PA pols who are supporting this). Maybe for once some PROGRESS and economic good will come
out of Harrisburg.
I live in SW PA...Marcellus Shale (and Utica Shale in OH) can make the US ENERGY INDEPENDENT within a few short years...we have several hundred years
of gas, shale, and oil. Refineries and pipeline will NEED to be built (bringing back the speciality steel industry and fabricating mills)...this
means jobs, job, jobs...the trick will be keeping the Obama EPA OUT of PA, OH, and WV (upstate NY is a lost political cause).
The draconian Obama EPA has destroyed thousands of jobs the the "War on Coal." Look what they did with the Keystone Pipeline. What is happening in
the "rust belt" is real, needed, safe (fracking has been done for over 60'years...SW PA is pretty solid bedrock) and CHEAP. Compare the 20 mil to
be spent here on CNG to Solyndra, LightSquared, etc. and you get a pretty clear picture of how natural gas IS the real "green industry."
