How Natural Gas Affects our Local Economy
This post is brought to you by Solar States. We may have heard mixed messages about Hydraulic fracturing or “fracking”: it’s good for the local economy because we do not have to import it/it is a “transition fuel” however, the contaminated water, radioactive water and threat of pipelines locally outweigh any of these menial pros that fracking fans may conjure up. Plus, continuing to risk natural resources as Governor Tom Corbett recently signed legislation allowing fracking in state forests and parks. Continuing to risk natural resources- especially spaces that were once protected by state and national law - is unacceptable. There's good news though: We already have an acceptable alternative that works locally: solar.
