Good News From the Shale Fields

According to The Equality Opportunity Project, children raised near the U S shale oil and gas fields have a better chance than others of rising to the top quintile of income earners as adults. These children will have the advantage of higher income parents with access to better schools, churches and community support facilities — all funded directly or indirectly from tax paid by E&P companies to develop the shale fields. “Proximity to the shale fields is bringing wealth, prosperity, jobs and upward mobility” according to Dr. Mark Perry of the University of Michigan.
