Last weekend, the New York Times published a series of articles that -- through leaks from EIA officials and natural gas industry insiders -- corroborated the findings of our landmark report, Will Natural Gas Fuel America in the 21st Century?: Don't believe the hype about plentiful U.S. natural gas supplies.
Of course, the controversy over natural gas is far from over, and PCI continues to provide energy realism and literacy to the debate. This week, PCI Fellow David Hughes published an analysis of two contradictory studies assessing the greenhouse gas emissions of shale gas vs. coal. The conclusion? Shale gas is worse for the climate over a 30-50 year timeframe.
From hot air to deflating (economic) balloons... We were blown away to receive nearly 600 orders in the span of 12 hours for Senior Fellow Richard Heinberg's newest book, The End of Growth: Adapting to Our New Economic Reality. In the video above, Richard expresses his gratitude to those of you who supported his work by purchasing a limited release, signed copy.
