Book details:
President Trump has forged ahead with the America-First Energy Policy, expanding oil and gas extraction while slashing health and environmental regulations. Other countries e.g. Germany and France eschewed shale altogether. Why do countries make such different energy choices? How can we move forward in balancing the benefits and costs from shale? Join a discussion with Shanti Gamper-Rabindran, associate professor from the University of Pittsburgh and Reid Frazier and Amy Sisk, journalists from StateImpact Pennsylvania. We examine shale issues from across the globe and to our local communities that are hosting shale wells, pipelines, disposal wells, and cracker plants.
