Looking at why shale gas is not the 'game-changer' touted in Wall Street's propaganda mills
Host Lisa Loving speaks with Bill Powers about his book, "Cold, Hungry and in the Dark: Exploding the Natural Gas Supply Myth." Does shale gas change everything? Will its development lead to U.S. energy independence and decades of cheap energy for America? The significance of shale gas as an important energy source has been vastly overstated.
