Philadelphia, which is officially on record against fracking, may finally be on its way to becoming the next Houston. It has just endorsed a LNG facility!
Last week, Philadelphia City Council approved a $60 million Marcellus LNG export facility, to be built on property owned by Philadelphia Gas Works (PGW). It was the final vote needed, held up by opposition from so-called environmentalists since March. Wackadoodle fossil fuel haters (holding up posters of The Lorax) were not happy at yesterday’s meeting when City Council voted 13-4 to approve the plan.
