Yes it will, but many jobs will be filled by transients who follow the work and they will not be concerned with the area. The boom will be short lived...about 4-5 years. Once all the drilling has been completed, the workers will move on to follow the drilling rigs.
Yes I do know that jobs will be created, but it is important to consider the costs to our community of allowing the raping of our environment. How many jobs is that worth?
What kind of question is this!? Of course it is going to add jobs to the Mahoning Valley.
V&M is already adding around 400-450. There will be thousands created and it is very exciting!!!
DRILL DRILL DRILL = JOBS JOBS JOBS .
In about 5 years, many of these issues shall have moved to communities up north and we will find out how reliable these gas and oil companies truely are in fulfilling their promises.
It is only wise to consider the long term effects and safety concerns 1st, then if there is not any longterm deterioration or other overlooked (or hidden) aspect to the deal, then the jobs can be created.
It needs to be addressed whether the jobs would be temporary at the expense of a shaky future for our properties.
There is an obvious answer to this question because it is already starting up old steel mills and this will need support for items from other industries.
There is a BIG difference between DRILLING for oil and gas and FRACKING for gas.There is a much higher risk of polluting ground water if FRACKING is used to extract gas from shale. High pressure salt water mixed with chemicals is forced into the shale releasing the methane contained within the shale. But, the groundwater gets methane mixed in with it and makes it undrinkable. AND people turn their faucets on, light a match and burn their water.Drilling into the shale to get methane is a much safer way than FRACKING. Drilling through the shale into the bedrock is a much safer way of getting oil than FRACKING.BEWARE OF FRACKING. BEWARE OF OUR GOVERNMENT (OR SHOULD I SAY THE INTERNATIONAL BANKERS WHO OWN OUR GOVERNMENT) THAT PROMOTES FRACKING.
