Opposition to a pipeline that will serve the Shell cracker in Western Pennsylvania offers a window into the ignorant world of fractivism and offers lessons.
For three nights in a row this past week the Pennsylvania Dept. of Environmental Protection (DEP) conducted hearings for Shell’s proposed Falcon ethane pipeline, a 97-mile pipeline system with two “legs” that will feed the Shell cracker plant now under construction in Monaca, Pennsylvania. It was a window into the world of antis.
We brought you a report from the first session, an eyewitness account from MDN friend Charlie Schliebs. That session was predominantly populated with antis attempting to paint nightmare scenarios if the pipeline (and Shell cracker) gets built.
Last night was the third and final session—at the Quaker Valley Middle School in Sewickley. Pennsylvania. Once again, we have an eyewitness account, this time from MDN friend Katie Klaber, former president of the Marcellus Shale Coalition and currently managing partner at The Klaber Group and a board member of the Federal Reserve Bank of Cleveland (Pittsburgh branch). She’s also a resident of Sewickley
