Pennsylvania is one of the largest producers of natural gas in our nation. What efforts are being made in this state to reduce this greenhouse gas and how effective are they? How can others learn from these efforts?
Tammy Murphy is Advocacy Director of the Physicians for Social Responsibility (PSR) of Pennsylvania. She will discuss the governor’s agreement with the company CNX, a natural gas driller, to reduce the effects of natural gas drilling in the state. This agreement is voluntary on the part of the company, has no enforcement mechanisms, yet is the first of its kind in the state. PSR is very opposed to the agreement while some other environmental groups think it may be a first step towards reining in natural gas drilling in a state where the legislature is failing to take action.
