I grew up in the natural gas industry and it is obvious that Bill Powers knows the industry very well. Cold, Hungry and in the Dark, is packed full of excellent information and statistics on the true state of the industry. It gives an honest analysis, backed up by the numbers, of what can be expected of the "shale revolution." It is not a panacea of endless cheap energy at all.
Bill Powers' book is well worth reading for anyone who wants to know the reality of the current natural gas industry.
