Hughes report referenced in Forbes

January 5, 2015

Post Carbon Fellow David Hughes report for PCI Drilling Deeper was referenced in this article on the future of shale gas.

From the article:

The analysis echoes work by other researchers, including J. David Hughes, a geoscientist and research fellow at the Post Carbon Institute, a sustainability think tank based in California. In October, Hughes published a 300-page analysis, titled “Drilling Deeper,” which concluded that shale gas — as well as shale oil — is “unsustainable in the medium- and longer-term at the rates forecast by the EIA, which are extremely optimistic.”
