Pennsylvania Waters Threatened By Chickens

by Paul Weamer   |  March 10th, 2012 6

These articles aren’t really a surprise.  Pennsylvania has a long tradition of allowing the most harmful industries known to mankind to set up shop along the banks of its best trout waters.  Pennsylvania used to use the slogan, “You have a friend in Pennsylvania,” in all of its tourist adds.  But PA’s best friend has become toxic industries, political pay-offs,  and superfund sites.  My home state may be the worst environmental steward in the country.

Titan Energy Park to be built on Spring Creek tributary, Logan Branch:

Here are some highlights from the Logan Branch link:

“The newly named Titan Energy Park will be marketed primarily but not exclusively to the natural gas industry and its booming activity in the Marcellus Shale”

“It’s got lots of space, rail siding, a waste energy plant, a sewage treatment plant, and an abundance of spring water,” Lauth said. “We think it’s a very unique site and a great opportunity for investors to create jobs in the area.”

I realize that unemployment is high, but creating jobs, no mater the cost, is sure to cost us a great deal in the future.  Perhaps Pennsylvania’s plan is to make the state so toxic, so unappealing, that few people will want to live here.  But then, if enough people leave the state, there will be plenty of jobs for those radioactive residents who remain.
