Nov. 15: Marcellus shale rush. A huge natural-gas-rich formation a mile underground has drawn deep-drilling energy prospectors to Indiana County (and to other regions of the state and surrounding states). The rush has raised environmental concerns.


The show hosted three guests -- the head of a long-time drilling-services company in Indiana County and two members of the Indiana County League of Women Voters' study committee on Marcellus shale drilling.

"Global Alert" producer Jessica Potter gathered student reaction to the proposal during a series of interviews at Stapleton Library on Oct. 30. And producer Garritt Fleming interviewed live in the studio Rachel DeStefano, a member of the SGA, an SGA representative on the board of the Student Cooperative Association and a self-described student environmental activist.
