Joe Sestak Calls For a Moratorium on Marcellus Shale Drilling

June 13, 2010

Pennsylvania Democrat candidate for US Senate Joe Sestak is calling for a moratorium on Marcellus shale drilling.

A rich source of natural gas, the Marcellus shale formation holds promise to bring jobs to Pennsylvania and the surrounding region as well as an additional energy resource for a country that is starving for fuel.

Joe Sestak, it appears, is not concerned about Pennsylvania jobs or solving out nation’s energy problems, only with scoring points with environmental groups while increasing government regulations.

Republican Pat Toomey, Sestak’s opponent in the November elections has pledged to do what he can to bring clean energy jobs to Pennsylvania, including drilling the Marcellus Shale.
