In Pennsylvania town, fracking presents unclear future

Pennsylvania townOn Sandra Brown's 45-acre farm in Greene County, located in the very southwest corner of Pennsylvania, it's a great time to be selling organic beef.

“There’s much more demand than I can supply,” she said.

So you might wonder why she has put her property, what she calls “a beautiful place,” on the market. Her worry, she said, is that it won't stay a "beautiful place." Her farm is sandwiched between a proposed coal operation and natural gas drilling.

Greene County's lush hills conceal a wealth of energy riches below -- a confluence of Appalachian coal and an enormous natural gas reserve called the Marcellus Shale.

Down the road from Brown's farm in the village of Holbrook, homes bought by a coal company now stand vacant.

Tucked away at the end of a dirt road on the far side of a corrugated steel tunnel is the Childs' family home. They call it Hummingbird Hollow. Photographer Terry Childs still lives here with his mom. They are among the last holdouts in the area.
