The Shale Country crew wrapped up their trip this past weekend, and now are - hopefully! - settling back into their daily routines. They had a whirlwind tour of three states in five days, and returned home with heads full of stories ideas. The last two days of the trip found them in Northeast Ohio, discussing citizen science, NIMBYism, economics, oil & gas regulation, and how to tell environment stories better. They paddled on the Cuyahoga River, and visited a massive fracination plant. They heard from farmers who have benefited from the boom, and those who resent it. They visited a couple at their rural home, where a compressor station has been built across the street - and runs 24/7 at roughly 80 decibels.
