With MSNBC, CNN, CBS and quite a few others recently picking up prime-time stories about the Marcellus Shale Madness, I would say we are at or precipitously close to the tipping point, folks. My little blog has also seen a significant uptick in traffic, not only from the U.S., but from elsewhere.
Now, with another group of citizens filing a lawsuit against the industry for contaminating their wells in northeastern PA, the ripple effect will only widen.
The Marcellus Shale Coalition has this "Marcellus Multiplier" slogan they use to tout all the positive economic impacts that NG drilling is having in Pennsylvania.
I think Marcellus Meltdown would be more appropriate.
Finally, a tip of the hat to the latest post from Frack Country Blues.
Think it's overkill? My webtracker says otherwise.
