Philly City Council Says No to Marcellus Shale Drilling

Taking a page from Da Burgh, maybe?

From The Philadelphia Inquirer:
As expected, the Philadelphia City Council on Thursday voted unanimously to approve a resolution opposing Marcellus Shale natural-gas development in the Delaware River basin until further environmental studies can be conducted.

Though the measure is symbolic, Councilman Curtis Jones Jr. said it sends a message that the city is officially worried about the environmental effect of gas drilling in the Delaware River watershed, from which the city draws its drinking water.
There's much more in this earlier article.

of course most of the drilling is far far West. I agree with the article that this is mainly symbolic.
