Western Pennsylvania is the heart of fracked natural gas country.
The western and central geographic area was nearly destitute.
And then they discovered natural gas in the shale rock formation about five thousand feet deep.
They used 3-D seismic studies and horizontal drilling and hydraulic fracturing.
They produced so much natural gas that in Pittsburgh, they had to build a high rise office building just to process the paperwork.
A very few counties now produce the major part of natural gas used in the whole United States.
So much natural gas is being produced that the price dropped from around $15 in 2008 down to around $3 today.
So much natural gas is being produced that the pipelines had to be reversed … so that instead of importing natural gas from the Southwest of the United States, they are now exporting natural gas to the whole eastern part of the United States.
Natural gas produced good-paying jobs.
So much natural gas is being produced in Pennsylvania, that they are able to use natural gas to power gas turbines to generate electricity to replace the coal-fired generators.
The “Southern Tier” of New York State has similar huge deposits of shale natural gas … Mrs. Clinton promised jobs, jobs, jobs for New York State. SHE DID NOTHING. Between Governor Cuomo of New York State and then-Senator Clinton of New York State, THEY DID NOTHING. The area still does not produce fracked natural gas.
Meanwhile ten feet to the south in Pennsylvania, natural gas is flowing in abundance.
Mrs. Clinton is adamantly opposed to fracking, mining, mining companies, and miners.
Mr. Trump is fully supportive of all forms of American energy including natural gas.
