Sustainable Shale Development?

Neil Leary, March 22, 2013

Did you catch the story on NPR Thursday morning about the launch of the Center for Sustainable Shale Development? A consortium of oil and gas development corporations, Environmental Defense Fund, PennFuture, the Heinz Endowments and others has formed to set environmental standards for gas and oil development in Marcellus Shale formation. See the article in Also see a negative view from the Sierra Club.

What are your thoughts? Is this a positive step? Or is this bad for the environment, the climate and/or communities in the Marcellus region?
