What They’re Saying: Shale a “Rare Economic Bright Spot” for America

Safe, job-creating American shale development continues to be a win-win for Pennsylvanians, the economy and our environment. Lauded as both a “rare economic bright spot” and the “greatest environmental triumph of the century”, it’s no wonder there is widespread public support for this “once-in-a-generation opportunity.” Yet, it’s important to note, that despite these benefits, there […]
