The Shale Dilemma

The Shale Dilemma

But how might those landscapes change? Will countries with significant physical reserves try to exploit them? Will they protect or harm local communities and the global climate? Will the benefits be shared or retained by powerful interests?

The US shale boom and efforts by other countries to exploit their shale resources could reshape energy and environmental landscapes across the world. But how might those landscapes change? Will countries with significant physical reserves try to exploit them? Will they protect or harm local communities and the global climate? Will the benefits be shared or retained by powerful interests? And how will these decisions be made? The Shale Dilemma brings together experts working at the forefront of shale gas issues on four continents to explain how countries reach their decisions on shale development. Using a common analytical framework, the authors identify both local factors and transnational patterns in the decision-making process. Eight case studies reveal the trade-offs each country makes as it decides whether to pursue, delay, or block development. Those outcomes in turn reflect the nature of a country’s political process and the power of interest groups on both sides of the issue. The contributors also ask whether the economic arguments made by the shale industry and its government supporters have overshadowed the concerns of local communities for information on the effects of shale operations, and for tax policies and regulations to ensure broad-based economic development and environmental protection. As an informative and even-handed account, The Shale Dilemma recommends practical steps to help countries reach better, more transparent, and more far-sighted decisions.

There are very serious environmental problems facing the planet. Biodiversity loss has reached unprecedented levels. Climate change is progressing so rapidly that within this century we are likely to see substantial sea level rise. There has been dramatic loss of tropical rainforests. Plastic pollution is killing wildlife and polluting our oceans. Various movements old and new are addressing these green issues. Civil society activism has taken on new strategies with the emergence of new technologies and global networks of green activists have formed. A new generation of green activists are emerging and boldly criticizing the status quo. At the same time, in some parts of the world, green movements that looked like they were beginning to gain a political foothold or were even doing quite well are in retreat. The reasons are complex. Some suffer from lack of funding and hostile political and legal environments. Others are being attacked by populist politicians who see green activism as a threat. The second edition of Historical Dictionary of the Green Movement contains a chronology, an introduction, and an extensive bibliography. The dictionary section has over 300 cross-referenced on green movements, green politics, green trends, and major environmental agreements and events. This book is an excellent resource for students, researchers, and anyone wanting to know more about the green movement.

The U S  Energy Dilemma

As the volume of the spent shale will be about 30 percent greater than that of the
oil shale originally mined , not all of it can be returned to the mine or excavation .
The excess must be disposed of in near - by canyons or be piled on the surface .

In the winter of 1972-1973, many individuals, government organizations, and business and industrial concerns in the United States were, for the first time, directly affected by the current energy dilemma. By the end of 1972, domestic output of both oil and natural gas had essentially reached the utmost productive capacity of the existing known reserves. Progress is being made in finding ways to produce liquid fuel and gas of pipeline quality from coal, recover oil from oil shale, and develop advanced nuclear reactors on a commercial basis. Progress also has been made in efforts to utilize energy from unconventional sources, among them geothermal, solar, and tidal sources. Some of these efforts will probably result in no more than limited contributions to our future energy supplies; others are likely to become major sources of supply. Ultimately, a combination of some of these various potential sources can be expected to provide the needed large additions to our energy supply, but none of them is now in a sufficiently advanced stage of development to offer significant relief for at least the next few years. Before the existing potential for energy can be realized, numerous economic, technologic, environmental, and resource problems that are currently impeding any immediate solution of the nation's energy dilemma must be overcome. This report identifies some of the factors contributing to the dilemma and discusses various aspects of proposals that have been offered as solutions to the problem.

This book addresses the question: how effective are countries in promoting the innovation needed to facilitate an energy transition? At the heart of the book is a set of empirical case studies covering supply and demand side technologies at different levels of maturity in a variety of countries. The case studies are set within an analytical framework encompassing the functions of technological innovation systems and innovation metrics. The book concludes with lessons and recommendations for effective policy intervention.
