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.

transition US update

A monthly update from the US regional hub of the international Transition movement.

Rob Hopkins We're delighted to announce that Richard Heinberg will be hosting our conversation with Rob Hopkins on July 18th. Rob is the author of the Transition Handbook and co-founder of the Transition Network. Join us, bright and early, for this special event! RSVP here. On the agenda: Rob will be exploring new and emerging ideas from the Transition Movement, and there will be opportunities to ask questions about Transition, hear new ideas from around the world, and discuss how Transition is taking shape specifically in the United States.

This month we welcome our 93rd official Transition Initiative, Transition Milwaukee in Wisconsin, and the first official initiative in Rhode Island, Revive the Roots. Read the June Roundup of What's Happening in the World of Transition for more stories and find an initiative near you.
