The Marcellus Shale Committee is not a committee of citizens concerned about the negative consequences of massively expanded efforts to drill for natural gas across the northeastern U.S.; it is an industry front group for oil and gas industry companies created in 2008. The Marcellus Shale Committee asserts that its goal is to promote "the responsible development of natural gas from the Marcellus Shale geological formation in Pennsylvania and the enhancement of the Commonwealth's economy that can be realized by this clean-burning energy source."[1]
