Pittsburgh Presbytery Votes to Oppose the Shell Ethane Cracker and Divest From Fossil Fuels

On December 14, 2017 [the Pittsburgh Presbytery] voted to concur with many other presbyteries around the nation to divest from fossil fuels. [It] also voted to oppose the fossil fuel industry expansion of our region as seen in the Royal Dutch Shell Ethane Cracker in Potter Township. The opposition to Shell’s ethane facility will be represented in an official letter by the entire Presbytery and mailed to all appropriate politicians, regulators and newspapers. [The letter] will make it very clear that environmental stewardship is an issue for people of faith.
