FRACK GAS: A Bridge Too Far… Larry J. Schweiger (President Emeritus and past CEO of PennFuture, Chair of the newly-formed regional chapter of the Climate Reality Leadership Corps) will discuss the impacts of fracking, ethane cracker plants and petrochemical development on our air quality and potential hazards; our water and food supply and safety; community seismic activity; occupational hazards, noise levels and the psychosocial tolls of boom and bust cycles.
Allegheny County's air quality is still ranked among the most unhealthy of all counties in the United States. While those at the northern edge of the county have been somewhat spared from the industrial portion of these air quality problems, things are about to change. Soon, the Shell ethane cracker plant in Potter Township will go into service. This is 13 miles, as the crow flies, from Bradfordwoods.
7 p.m. at Bradfordwoods Community Church (4836 Wexford Run Road, Bradfordwoods, Pa 15015) Free and open to the public. Sponsored by the Bradfordwoods Conservancy.
