The House of Commons Select Committee on Energy and Climate Change recently appeared to give shale gas operations a clean bill of health. This roundtable discussion will consider whether this decision was premature, given that a recent Cornell University study implies that shale gas operations are worse than coal in terms of greenhouse gas emissions. As a number of other assessments continue in the United States and Europe, Florence Gény will discuss some of the emerging issues around shale gas.
