PA Governor Corbett Devalues Renewable Energy, Supports Gas Industry

Governor Corbett
Pennsylvania's primary energy office, the Office of Energy and Technology Deployment, has been severely slashed.  The directors of the office have been removed and reassigned to the Office of Energy Management and the Governor's Green Government Council, according to Don Hopey in the Pittsburgh Post-Gazette Sunday.  The governor has also put a stop to signing contracts that support clean energy supply. There are many negative ramifications to this change of focus, for example, losing possibly more than 100,000 good jobs.  Read more here:  LINK

Governor Corbett had the bright idea of paddling the Susquehanna River in a kayak recently, but he purposely avoided any citizens who might ask him the hard questions about the gas industry and its effect on the river.
