Shale gas in Pennsylvania, illustrated & explained

Michael Giberson

National Geographic takes an in-depth look at changes being brought to Pennsylvania courtesy of the development of the Marcellus shale for natural gas.  They give us many different viewpoints through which to see the changes – landowners for and against, job-seekers, small business owner, environmentalist – all in all excellent work.  About the only side of this story not featured here is that of the northeastern energy consumer, the group who will benefit the most from the tapping of this once-nearly-impossible-to-reach resource.
