The Petrochemical Build-Out:

Not What It’s Cracked Up To Be

 

Co-hosted by the Chatham University College Democrats

On December 8, 2019, the Sunday edition of the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette featured as its front-page story the article:
“Study: Shale gas job gains don’t offset the damage done: CMU Study finds build-out causes early deaths, affects environment.”

The 14th Ward Independent Democratic Club has invited the authors of the Carnegie Mellon University report to share their findings with the community.

Recent analysis has indicated that the proposed building of additional cracker plants in Western Pennsylvania, Ohio and West Virginia may have serious environmental and economic consequences. With regard to the City of Pittsburgh alone, Mayor Bill Peduto in a Public Source interview said “there was no meeting that occurred that shifted our economic future away from the growing eds and meds to cracker plants . . . but that’s what happened.”

A question and answer session will follow.
CO-HOSTED by the Chatham University Young Democrats
