first_imgPittsburgh mayor against expanding petrochemicals and fracking industries in Western PA FacebookTwitterLinkedInEmailPrint分享PublicSource:Pittsburgh Mayor Bill Peduto spoke out for the first time publicly against bringing additional petrochemical companies to Western Pennsylvania at the Climate Action Summit in Downtown Pittsburgh Wednesday.Peduto doubled down on his support for investing in green energy jobs and environmental cleanup, rather than fracking and plastics. When Peduto talks to business leaders across the country and region, he said, they tell him one thing: “Clean your air and clean your water.”“They are not asking for free parking or tax breaks,” Peduto said. “They are asking for the basics.”Peduto said it was time to push back against a common attitude in the region that tackling climate change was bad for business. “There is this belief that anybody who wants to work to address climate change is bad for business,” he said. “And that culture is very real in Western Pennsylvania. That belief that those who are trying to save the planet are anti-business, resonates far beyond the fossil fuel industry. I can’t find a corporate partner to stand with me. None. Zero.”More: Peduto speaks out publicly for the first time against a petrochemical expansion in Western Pennsylvanialast_img read more
