Protect PT Hosts Jan. 25 Lunch & Learn Program With CMU's Nicholas Muller On Cumulative Impacts Of Shale Gas Boom

Westmoreland County-based Protect PT is hosting an online Community Lunch & Learn Program Jan. 25 with Carnegie Mellon University's Nicholas Muller about the cumulative environmental and employment impacts of the shale gas boom in Pennsylvania and the Appalachian Basin.

“While gas development has boosted aspects of the regional economy, private firms have not faced the full costs of natural gas development,” explains Nicholas Muller, Associate Professor of Economics, Engineering, and Public Policy at CMU’s Tepper School of Business, who co-authored the study. “In our work, we sought to evaluate the cumulative and disparate impacts of current energy systems to inform policy making.”
