Mike's book, Shale Gas and Fracking
Mike Stephenson's new book 'Shale gas and fracking: the science behind the controversy' looks at the geology and environmental aspects of shale gas from the European and American perspective, debunking the ‘bad science’ on both sides of the argument and making clear the science that does matter so that people can make an informed choice. The science that does matter is peer-reviewed and published and therefore independent.
