The discovery of the Marcellus Shale that contains abundant natural gas reserves has been a mixed blessing for northeastern Pennsylvania. There have been obvious financial gains to the areas, including employment opportunities and stimulation of businesses in the area. Landowners including farmers have received much-needed financial gain through land leases.
On the other hand, there has been environmental damage as a result of hydrologic fracturing ("fracking") technology. There have also been numerous injuries and fatalities involving workers and others who were at the wrong place at the wrong time when gas pipelines exploded. Often young men, these workers took the chance to make a good living, while unwittingly putting their lives on the line while working around dangerous gas pipelines.
