My latest post for the Kleinman Center for Energy Policy at the University of Pennsylvania discusses the development of rare earth element resources, which may be a big environmental and economic opportunity for Pennsylvania.
I worked on this issue with the U.S. Department of Energy when I was Secretary of the Pennsylvania Department of Environmental Protection. Among other things, I convened geologists from DEP and our sister agency DCNR - great public servants all - to see how the Commonwealth could support this important work from a technical standpoint.
There is significant potential here.
