About this book

The rapid growth of shale gas development has led to an intense and polarizing debate about the merit of shale gas. At the same time, and essentially independent of shale gas development, countries around the world concluded at the 2012 U.N. Conference on Sustainable Development that the transition to sustainability must be accelerated. Shale Gas and the Future of Energy asks and suggests answers to a question that has not been systematically analyzed: what laws and policies are needed to ensure that shale gas development helps accelerate the transition to sustainability?
