About the header image: September 26, 2012

This week's header image comes from a photo expedition by local newsman Andy Palumbo last March in Susquehanna County. As he wrote of this image on that post:

The photo above was taken in Dimock.  Impressions?  The rigs are bigger than they look on TV, and there weren't as many of them as I expected.  It's all relative.  If you feel drilling and fracking is ruining the environment, one is too many.  If you work in the industry, or if you make money from gas drilling, you likely think there should be more.

If you haven't seen one for yourself, they're still around. They'll probably be around for a while. Will the consequences of the natural gas industry be with us as long as the consequences of the coal industry? Time will tell.
