Shale gas will lead to more global emissions
Jan 31: A research paper puts to rest the controversy over whether gas is going to mitigate or exacerbate global warming.
8The paper firmly establishes that exploitation of shale gas in the face of unavailability of carbon capture and storage, and higher than acceptable leakage rates, will increase the cost and reduce feasibility of meeting global temperature goals.
8The conclusion is that the extraction of shale gas is not likely to significantly reduce the effort required to mitigate climate change under globally coordinated action, but could increase
the required mitigation effort.
