FROM: Ron Baygents, NPC Newsmakers Committee chairman,
Energy Challenges Surrounding Natural Gas Drilling
Environmental Experts to Discuss Need, Impacts
For Natural Gas Drilling at National Press Club
The National Press Club Newsmakers Committee will host a panel of experts to
discuss the the challenges, impacts and need for natural gas drilling at a
Newsmaker forum in the club's Lisagor Room at 10:00 a.m. Tuesday, May 24, in
the National Press Building, 529 14th St. NW, Washington, D.C.
Experts to discuss this issue will be anti-drilling activist Adrian
Kuzminski and Resources for the Future (RFF) expert Alan Krupnick.
Kuzminski argues the cumulative evidence on the impacts of hydraulic
fracturing for natural gas shows it is bad public policy. The risks, harms,
and costs of that practice so far outweigh its benefits that it should not
be allowed to go forward. Krupnick, who runs RFF's energy center, has done
research on the economic and environmental implications of newly accessible
shale reserves. Interestingly, one of his findings is that, absent other
policy like a carbon price or CES, more shale raises total U.S. carbon
emissions because it will end up displacing high cost renewables and nuclear
rather than coal.
Bracewell Giuliani energy expert Frank Maisano, a member of the NPC's
Newmakers' Committee will host and moderate the event.
