The Rise and Rise of Natural Gas

Following our discussion in class last week about energy trends over the past few decades, here is a trailer for a  recent documentary on the rise of natural gas entitled 'Gasland' and it doesn't make for easy viewing. The documentary was shown on Current TV last night and may be repeated over the coming weeks.

The Gaurdian newspaper has also got invovled in the debate and provides a 'Facts and Figures' approach to shale gas fracking. Make your own mind up??
