Cornell University Professor Emeritus of Civil and Environmental Engineering and PSE co-founder and Senior Fellow Anthony Ingraffea, PhD, PE, presented a three-part seminar on the national energy transition, and how unconventional oil and gas development relates to renewable energy, and climate change.

In this series, Ingraffea attempts to answer these questions:

  • What is “unconventional gas and oil”?
  • What is “fracking” all about?
  • How are these resources developed?
  • What are the impacts of the development process?

Part I  Unconventional Oil and Gas: Shale and Scale

Part II Unconventional Oil and Gas: Impact on Climate Change

Part III Unconventional Oil and Gas versus Renewable Energy
