The Commonwealth of Pennsylvania fought hard to secure the Shell Cracker for Western Pennsylvania but coastal elites are fighting to stop it.
Two different Pennsylvania Governors of different parties fought to get Royal Dutch Shell to locate a cracker in Beaver County. It’s a massive economic opportunity for all of Pennsylvania; a multi-billion investment that will create jobs, stimulate other manufacturing and . That hasn’t stopped New York, Philadelphia, Pittsburgh and San Francisco snobs from trying to undermine it, though. These coastal elites, who form the financial backbone of fractivism in this country, are funding opposition to the Shell cracker. What’s happening is the reason Donald Trump, for better or worse, was elected President by Pennsylvanians among others; to strike back at this same plutocracy.
