The President speaks on a visit to Shell-soon-to-be-completed Pennsylvania petrochemicals complex in nun, PA.

President Trump is trying to promote, a the area, hungry for investment, Tuesday, by it materials, the growing efforts of capital to the Western Pennsylvania natural gas deposits by turning on the power source in art.

Trump traveled a nun, about 25 miles North of Pittsburgh, on tour, Shell-soon-to-be-completed Pennsylvania petrochemicals complex.

“This never would have happened without me, and us,” said Trump, who spoke to an audience of thousands of construction workers dressed in fluorescent orange and yellow, shirts and T-Shirts.

Trump’s visit was to increase in line with a consistent push of his administration, the economy, the dependence on fossil fuels, which, in spite of urgent warnings about climate change. It was also a hug from plastic-at a time when the world is sounding memories about his omnipresence and effect.

Critics of the Shell plant, oil and gas company announced, in 2012, to claim it is the largest air-polluter in Western Pennsylvania.


Trump’s appeals to the blue-collar worker helped him win, Beaver County, where the plant is located, from 18.5 percentage points in the year 2016, only the voters have Democrats turn in the year 2018, the mid-term elections. In a series of defeats that led to the Republicans’ loss of control of the house of representatives, the voters narrowly Democrat Conor Lamb and the Congress sent in a special election.

Beaver County is still fighting for the closure of the steel works in the 1980s, the unemployment rate rose to almost 30 percent. Former mill towns like Aliquippa have seen shrinking of their populations, while Pittsburgh lured the big tech companies like Google and Uber is fueling an economic renaissance in a city that votes reliably Democratic.

The region, the natural gas-bearing had seen sites, for a time, as the new path to prosperity associated with drilling in the Marcellus Shale reservoir conversion of Pennsylvania, the nation’s No. 2 natural gas in-state. But she falls in the price of oil and gas caused it to fizzle out the first jobs boom from fracking, to materials, leading companies such as Shell, turning instead to art and the so-called cracker plant to be named after the process in which molecules at high heat fracked ethane gas in one of the starting materials for the plastic.

Shell received a massive tax to build benefits that the Petro-chemical complex, together with a $10 million site development, with local politicians eager for a multibillion-dollar construction project.

Trump defended the investment in plastics, to require, to the pollution of the ocean is “our plastic.”

“It is plastic that is floating over the ocean and the different oceans of other places,” he told reporters before boarding Air Force One.

A pro-fracking trade group said it would applaud the administration’s energy policy.

“Cost-effective, abundant, local natural gas, the operation of a rust belt revival, as the region looks to be a competitive advantage in attracting advanced manufacturing and the good paying jobs that come with it,” Marcellus Shale Coalition President David Spigelmyer said.

The project currently has 5,000 construction workers. Once ready for operation, however, the site is busy, far-less — 600 — full-time employees.


And the area is still against the wind. The nearby Beaver Valley power station, a nuclear power plant that employs 850 staff, has announced plans in the year 2021. And the Bruce Mansfield power plant, after the state’s largest coal-powered plant, announced on Friday that it would close this fall, 19 months earlier than expected, at a price of at least 200 jobs.
