Gas-Powered Electric Plant to be Built “on Thousands of People”

Since 2013 we’ve been tracking the story that Invenergy, a company that builds and operates clean energy electric generating plants like those powered by natural gas, plans to build such a plant near Scranton, PA (see Marcellus Gas to Power Combined-Cycle Electricity Plant in NE PA). In October 2014, Invenergy purchased the 80-acre parcel in Jessup where they plan to build the plant (see Invenergy Buys Land in NEPA for Natgas Electric Generating Plant). In January of this year, the first in what will be a string of public hearings was held in Jessup (see Public Hearing on NEPA Proposed Marcellus-Powered Electric Plant). There was understandable concern from some area residents about air quality and other issues. Now that the plant is getting much closer to reality, it’s time for the anti-drillers to come out–and right on cue, they have. One of them is quoted as saying the plant will “be built on thousands of people. Literally thousands of people.” Wait. Did we miss something? Is this plant being built on top of cemetery? Is Invenergy planning on killing thousands and throwing the bodies in a trench so they can construct a plant on top of them?…
