People are finally getting meaningfully organized in Pennsylvania around this issue. Consider this massive anti-Shell cracker “#ToxicNeighbor” campaign recently initiated by the state-wide environmental organization, PennFuture

And the #PetrochemicalAmerica exhibit wrapping up today in downtown Pittsburgh (the exhibit moves right into Shell’s territory in Beaver, PA in a few weeks)

EXTRACTS FROM WIKIPEDIA ARTICLE: 

The Pennsylvania Shell ethylene cracker plant is a proposed chemical plant in Potter Township, Pennsylvania near Pittsburgh that will be owned and operated by Shell Oil Company, the American subsidiary of supermajor oil company Royal Dutch Shell.[1] The plant will be located near the interchange of Interstate 376 and Pennsylvania Route 18, expecting to open in the early 2020s.[2]

Opposition to project

In late 2015, a group of environmentalists submitted an appeal to Pennsylvania’s Environmental Hearing Board to challenge the air quality permit that was granted for the proposed plant; the group argued that the state should have required stricter monitoring requirements for fugitive pollutant emissions from the plant.[16]
