You're invited to a briefing exposing the lie of a long-term fracking boom.
The briefing will include a presentation by David Hughes, the analyst who accurately predicted the 90% downgrade of California’s Monterey Shale.
Using the same data as Energy Department forecasters, he will debunk their overly optimistic forecasts for shale development — the same forecasts local, state & national government use to guide economic/energy policy and planning.
Hughes also calls into question industry claims about U.S. energy independence and the viability of oil and natural gas exports.
Drilling Deeper finds that the so-called “shale revolution” is actually a short-term bubble — and not worth its risks to the environment and to our communities.
