I have been asked to continue to blog for WPSU on local politics, so periodically I will be draw your attention here to my posts there.
The Ethics of Drilling
My latest post concerns the manner in which policy decisions are made in Harrisburg with reference specifically to the question of how to monetize drilling for gas on the Marcellus shale that runs underneath much of the state. In the post I criticized policy makers for focusing exclusively on economic concerns and failing to frame the question of drilling as a broader, ethical decision.
