Natural Gas NOW
Pennsylvania DEP is engaged in something inexplicably dangerous; effectively shooting at gas pipes with targeted attacks on the gas industry over methane.
There is something very wrong going on at the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection (DEP). The agency is, rhetorically speaking, shooting at gas pipes, threatening to explode an industry that saved the Pennsylvania economy during the last recession.
The issue is methane regulation, a solution looking for a problem, as the Marcellus Shale Coalition properly puts it. Never has government put so much effort into punishing one industry that’s done more than any other to solve a problem. It’s as if the District Attorney has decided to prosecute the Chief of Police for reducing crime and making their jobs less important. Such has always been the nature of Pennsylvania DEP where real problems are ignored in favor of harassing the innocent.
