Where is that Marcellus Shale blog we need?
One side impact of Marcellus shale and the ever lower price of natural gas.... it's too cheap to build windmills. Weren't we suppose to get all those green jobs for our steelworkers building the wind turbines? I saw the ads, it must be true.
Kind of interesting that former President Bush has gone on the speaking circuit and one of his first major speeches is about wind power. Not quite sure what to make of that.
and I don't really see much notice of this here.... I pointed out BP was making Making marcellus related investments, so the British are coming... but so are the Asian sovereign wealth funds... So the Spanish own Kennywood, the French own the cabs and now the Chinese are going to own our natural gas (well.. not yet, maybe someday). What's next? The Japanese are going to buy Westinghouse or something like that. What then?
I still think that the most efficient economic development strategy for the region would be to fund the hiring of a Mandarin teacher for every school. Would be a lot cheaper than a lot of other things we try. Think of all the earned media we would get.
