Impacto ambiental del shale gas

Via Michael Levi, un nuevo informe sobre el impacto ambiental del shale gas, definitivo según él:

The Natural Gas Subcommittee of the Secretary of Energy Advisory Board has published its 90-day interim report (PDF) on “Improving the Safety and Environmental Performance of Hydraulic Fracturing”. It is an exceptional piece of work. Anyone who wants to understand the environmental consequences of shale gas development, and the tools available to manage them, should read it in its entirety.

El informe no me lo he leído, pero leyendo quién lo ha coordinado y lo que dice, tiene pinta de ser muy recomendable:

John Deutch, who chairs the subcommittee, summed up the report nicely in an interview with the FT:
‘Our report is a compromise, and in that sense it will make nobody happy,’ Mr Deutch said. ‘This report is the only balanced discussion that I’ve seen of the shale gas industry.’
