Fighting Petrochemical Industry Buildout

Residents of SWPA are fighting a David vs. Goliath battle against the petrochemical industry in our region and beyond to Ohio and West Virginia. The Appalachian Basin is facing massive growth of this highly polluting fossil fuel industry from the Shell cracker plant in Beaver, Pa., to pipelines, compressor stations, drilling operations, wellpads, a storage hub and truck traffic.  This industry will push our planet over the edge on climate change, making it absolutely impossible to meet Paris Accord Climate Goals.
