The Fiscal Times reports that U.S. shale gas and oil is disrupting the global energy market and Russia's economy.
David Francis writes: "Russia had the United States on its heels during the Bush administration. Now, Russia is concerned about how much the U.S. shale gas explosion will hit Russia’s energy industry, the single source of the country’s economic strength.
"In 2000, shale gas provided only one percent of U.S. natural gas production. By 2010 that number grew to 20 percent, and some analysts predict it will swell to 46 percent by 2035, according to Paul Stevens, an oil and energy expert, in his book The Shale Gas Revolution."
