The Marcellus Shale is an underground geological formation which spans much of the Appalachian United States, including parts of Tennessee, Kentucky, Ohio, Pennsylvania, New York, Virginia and most of West Virginia. This black shale formation has been proven by geologists to be a rich source of natural gas, a renewable resource which many Americans use in their homes. Because of the existence of this natural gas, many jobs were created in the hydraulic fracturing industry. Hydraulic fracturing involves using a concentrated fluid at high force to drive into the ground in order to gain access to the natural gas. While this has created an entirely new labor force for the Appalachian states, it is also unfortunately a dangerous job that has many risks of health and bodily injury.
