What's the fracking fuss all about?

10 Oct 2011
Description

This public forum, held by the Brisbane Institute, examined the energy and fuel options for Queensland.

What’s the most accurate picture available for peak oil? What are the alternatives? What are the risks and costs for Queensland in NOT developing alternative fuel resources? And what opportunities and rewards are waiting for us – economically, socially and environmentally – if we’re clever enough to grasp them?
Leading this public forum was one of the most instantly recognisable names in the petroleum and chemical engineering professions and the energy industry, Dr Michael Economides, co-author of bestselling book, The Colour of Oil and editor-in-chief of Energy Tribune, along with Wally Wight from the Australian Association for the Study of Peak Oil and Gas, Adam Stone from the Queensland Greens, AgForce’s Drew Wagner, Pearce Bowman from QER, and Sustainable Minerals Institute director Dr Chris Moran.
