Profiles in fracking

The issue of fracing (or fracking) seems to frequently arise in NY State politics. This is largely due to the indefinite moratorium that could be lifted at any time. I am not going to expand on the pros and cons of fracing here, but I do want to share the stories of 3 new employees for oil and gas companies that are fracing, or supporting fracing, operations in Pennsylvania.

I had the opportunity to meet them last week during a safety course, and I plan over the next several days to provide a look at each person’s relationship with the fracing industry that is causing so much controversy.

The three gentlemen are:

1) The migrant worker

2) The disillusioned college grad

3) The high school success

Each has a different story that helps me to understand a little better a topic that is largely covered through the environmental/safety angle. I will link to each story from this page when they are published.
