Last Thursday evening at STU, we attended a lecture by professor William Rees entitled Confronting Ecological Change: What would an intelligent species do?
The link above is to Information Morning's Terry Seguin speaking to Rees on the day of the lecture. Rees mentions shale gas in the interview.
Rees's appearance was part of a STU forum on climate change running at the university last week. We attended the lecture and thought you might be interested in some of the information he discussed. See the YouTube video below:
