From Shenango site to Shell cracker plant: A tour of the region’s industrial and environmental sites
Fifty climate activists packed onto a tour bus near the Energy Innovation Center in Uptown on Saturday. “I’d like to see us go on a fun trip somewhere,” Perry Recker, a member of the Pittsburgh chapter of the Climate Reality Project, had heard someone say at one of their recent climate change meetings. From that comment, they planned a tour. As if on cue, applause broke out when the last woman climbed aboard and the tour could start. Nine months ago, Al Gore, the founder of he Climate Reality Project, came to Pittsburgh and spoke to more than 1,000 activists.
