Frustrated fractivists have turned their sights on pipeline infrastructure in still another effort to stop the highly successful shale gas revolution. Let’s not let then get away with it.
If you have been following the news lately, you might have noticed those against anything fossil fuel related have moved the goalposts yet again. Unable to stop regional drilling, unable to prove hydraulic fracturing is polluting water and decimating countrysides, unable to gather local support to stop compressor stations and other community projects, they have now moved to trying to stop much-needed pipeline infrastructure in the tri-state region.
The Atlantic Sunrise and PennEast pipeline projects are key pieces of energy infrastructure needed to transport low-cost, abundant supplies of natural shale gas from the Marcellus regions in Pennsylvania to hungry energy markets along our east coast. Pipelines have crossed this state and our country for years…they are nothing new and are, by far, the safest way to transport fuels of many different kinds.
It’s time for Pennsylvania residents, along with the large majority of smart and reasonable tri-state and east coast residents, to support the speedy construction of the already well-regulated Atlantic Sunrise and PennEast projects, among others. Let’s move our Marcellus and Utica gas to the east coast, where it is sorely needed and residents have the opportunity to save even more money from a shale industry that has already dramatically reduced prices and ensured the availability of reliable supplies of natural gas.
There are multiple layers of gas bearing shale beneath our feet. Let’s share the bounty with neighbors so we can all benefit utilizing clean burning, affordable natural gas until a time that other sources of energy might be reasonably utilized to power our daily lives. Don’t let a small minority of activists keep moving the goalposts to stymie our regional economic development and national energy security.
