The pros and cons of natural gas pipelines in Pennsylvania


Guests: Maya van Rossum and Andrew Levine

According to StateImpact Pennsylvania, “thousands of miles of new pipelines in Pennsylvania will have to be built to transport Marcellus Shale gas.” While pipeline construction will undoubtedly generate jobs, concerns have been raised over safety issues and lack of regulation. The state is already home to many existing intra and interstate pipelines. In this hour of Radio Times, we’ll discuss the pros and cons of natural gas pipelines in Pennsylvania with MAYA VAN ROSSUM of the Delaware Riverkeeper Network and ANDREW LEVINE of Stradley Ronon and the Greater Philadelphia Chamber of Commerce’s Energy Action Team.
