Alternative Energy sources need to be found, and Pennsylvania has been a leader in supporting the development of such fuels. As always, we have to assure the taxpayer money is spent wisely.
Alternative energy needs to be part of the national mix, if the U.S. is to meet our energy needs for years to come.
The natural gas find known as the Marcellus Shale geologic formation is a tremendous find, and offers an alternative fuel source for our cars of the future. Compressed natural gas is a proven technology, the same one that T. Boone Pickens has been hawking in TV commercials. With more than 50 trillion cubic feet of natural gas in the Marcellus Shale, it could provide a major portion of our fuel needs for generations.
