But what if the boom is just a bubble?
In December 2014, J. David Hughes and Asher Miller from Post Carbon Institute were joined by staff from DeSmogBlog, Sierra Club, and Americans Against Fracking to share and discuss the implications of the report Drilling Deeper: A Reality Check on Govt Forecasts of a Lasting Fracking Boom.
Hosted by: Stop the Frack Attack and Americans Against Fracking. Co-sponsored by: Post Carbon Institute, EARTHWORKS, The Sierra Club, Food & Water Watch, Clean Water Action, Fractivist, Delaware Riverkeeper Network, Environmental Working Group and Energy Policy Forum.
On March 27, 2014 “Drilling California” author J. David Hughes was joined by business leader and Next Generation co-founder Tom Steyer and Robert Collier, a research fellow with Next Generation, to discuss the prospects of developing California’s Monterey Shale during a panel in Sacramento. A recording of the event can be viewed below.
This event was a joint effort of Post Carbon Institute, Physicians, Scientists and Engineers for Healthy Energy, and Next Generation. For more information on the Monterey Shale, see “Drilling California: A Reality Check on the Monterey Shale.”
