On May 12th we released Will Natural Gas Fuel America in the 21st Century?. Written by PCI Fellow J. David Hughes, the detailed report argues that the natural gas industry has propagated dangerously false claims about natural gas production supply, cost and environmental impact. Our report calls into question the prevalent assumption that we have access to over a century of cheap and easy natural gas.
Will Natural Gas Fuel America in the 21st Century has been requested by local, state and federal agencies, media and concerned citizens worldwide. Since it’s release less than three weeks ago, the report has been downloaded over 11,000 times.
Today we are releasing three supplements to the report that we hope you’ll find of interest and value:
“Agriculture and Natural Gas” by PCI Fellow Michael Bomford
“Problems and Opportunities with Natural Gas as a Transportation Fuel” by PCI Adviser Richard Gilbert and PCI Fellow Anthony Perl
“Public Health Concerns of Shale Gas Production” by PCI Fellows Brian Schwartz, MD, and Cindy Parker, MD.
Whenever our tiny organization meets with success like this—when we succeed at changing the conversation despite the overwhelming firepower of the fossil fuel industries—we’re reminded that it’s our growing pool of peers and supporters who do so much of the real work. Without your generous contributions and ardent networking on our behalf, we’d make little progress. And so, once again—thank you.
