La Commission européenne publie trois études sur les combustibles fossiles non conventionnels

Ces études portent sur les effets potentiels de ces combustibles sur les marchés de l’énergie, l’impact climatique potentiel de production de gaz de schiste et les risques potentiels relatifs à l’exploitation et à la fracturation hydraulique que les gaz de schiste pourraient présenter pour la santé humaine et l’environnement.

Golden rules for a golden age of gas

But some governments are hesitant, or even actively opposed. They are responding to public concerns that production might involve unacceptable environmental and social damage. This report treats these aspirations and anxieties with equal seriousness…
