For John, BLUF: Converting Natural Gas to plastics in Western Pennsylvania. Nothing to see here; just move along.
From The Washington Examiner, by Reporter Salena Zito, 25 January 2019.
Here is a key paragraph:
The project has already created 1,000 new jobs and is expected to top out at 6,000 during the construction and preparation phases over the next decade before the plant is fully operational. The plant itself is expected to employ more than 600 people permanently, a mix of labor, engineers, and chemists, with Shell analysts predicting it will provide work for two to three times that number in its supply chain.If your company is about to make a big investment in the petrochemical area, are you pulling for President Donald Trump or US Representative Alexandria Ocasio-Cortez?
After all it is only about jobs, and people's sense of self worth, and thus their sense of dignity.
