Group releases new guide to unconventional fossil fuels

By Bob Downing Published: July 7, 2014

From Corporate Watch:

London-based Corporate Watch has released a new 88-page cutting-edge report: 'To the Ends
of the Earth: a Guide to Unconventional Fossil Fuels."

The endless pursuit of economic growth, coupled with the decline in
conventional energy sources, is driving ever more extreme forms of
energy extraction around the world, with ecologically and socially
disastrous consequences.

From the dangers of fracking to the devastating effects of tar sands
extraction, this guide brings together everything you need to know
about unconventional fossil fuels in one place for the first time. It
gives an in-depth yet accessible analysis of their social and
environmental effects, and includes information on where they are
found, the companies trying to profit from them and the growing
resistance movements against them. The report also contains a unique
'carbon budget' climate change assessment of unconventional fossil
fuel production, and stand-alone factsheets on each of the types of
unconventional fossil fuel.

We want to spread the research far and wide, to get it used by as many
people as possible.
