Just about everyone has heard something about the 'revolution' in shale oil. Hydraulic fracturing (fracking) of rock formations unique to the United States offers the promise of cheap and abundant energy, terrific economic growth and jobs - lots of jobs. But in 2014, something went terribly wrong with this rosy scenario of "Saudi America": A unexpected collapse in the price of oil that's bankrupting the oil patch, destroying jobs and threatening any plans of a renewable energy future. What happened? Why has this miracle 'revolution' generated so many losers and so few winners? Why isn't the United States any closer to energy independence than it was before oil from shale was even imagined? What can be done to put the markets and the industry right so that shale can deliver on even some of what's been promised?

Focusing on two Arizona towns that had their origins in mining bonanzas—Tombstone and Jerome—historian Eric L. Clements offers a rare study dissecting the process of bust itself—the reasons and manners in which these towns declined as the mining booms ended. Tombstone was the site of one of the great silver bonanzas of the nineteenth century, a boom that started in the late 1870s and was over by 1890. Jerome’s copper deposits were mined for much longer, beginning in the 1880s and enduring until the 1930s. But when the mining booms ended, each town faced its decline in similar ways. The process of decline was more complex than superficial histories have indicated, and Clements discusses the role of labor unions in trying to stave off collapse, the changing demography of decline, the nature and expression of social tensions, the impact on institutions such as churches and schools, and the human responses to continued economic depression. But bust involved more than a steady decline into ghost-town status, Clements discovers: the towns' remaining residents employed numerous strategies to survive and reduce household expenses. In the end, both towns reinvented themselves as late-twentieth-century tourist attractions.

The US shale boom and efforts by other countries to exploit their shale resources could reshape energy and environmental landscapes across the world. But how might those landscapes change? Will countries with significant physical reserves try to exploit them? Will they protect or harm local communities and the global climate? Will the benefits be shared or retained by powerful interests? And how will these decisions be made? The Shale Dilemma brings together experts working at the forefront of shale gas issues on four continents to explain how countries reach their decisions on shale development. Using a common analytical framework, the authors identify both local factors and transnational patterns in the decision-making process. Eight case studies reveal the trade-offs each country makes as it decides whether to pursue, delay, or block development. Those outcomes in turn reflect the nature of a country’s political process and the power of interest groups on both sides of the issue. The contributors also ask whether the economic arguments made by the shale industry and its government supporters have overshadowed the concerns of local communities for information on the effects of shale operations, and for tax policies and regulations to ensure broad-based economic development and environmental protection. As an informative and even-handed account, The Shale Dilemma recommends practical steps to help countries reach better, more transparent, and more far-sighted decisions.

"This study is organized into ten discrete chapters, beginning with the historical background then moving to consideration of socioeconomic, environmental, and health impacts. Of special importance to local Pennsylvania communities will be the chapter on economic impacts, including the state shale gas development impact fees. The last three chapters are directed at ameliorating the impact of a boom and bust scenario through economic strategies, community regulatory and planning alternatives, and community best practices"--Page 1.

Survey after survey reveals that many Coloradans believe that the U.S. government is too big, too wasteful, and too intrusive. Yet Colorado is arguably one of the most federally subsidized states in the union, with forests, national parks, military bases, and research laboratories benefiting from the federal government’s largesse. A concise history of Colorado’s constitution and central political institutions, Colorado Politics and Policy offers a probing analysis of the state’s political cultures. It shows how the state, in many ways a template of the deeply contrary politics of the nation, puts political power into the hands of an ever-more-polarized electorate increasingly inclined to put the concerns of government to the test of the citizen-initiative. Colorado Politics and Policy is the result of broad-gauged and sophisticated research which includes author interviews with citizens and officials across the state, three specially commissioned statewide public opinion surveys, and extensive interviews with governors, legislators, judges, lobbyists, interest group leaders, and leading political analysts. This fresh and engaging interpretation is essential reading for those who want to understand Colorado’s major election trends, chief public policy and budget challenges, and this distinctively purple state’s unique political history.

Climate change remains the single most important challenge of our generation. But despite almost universal recognition of the ongoing crisis, the United States has been unable to move quickly and smartly towards even moderate acceptance and integration of renewable energy into our fossil fuel driven economy. Dan Dicker, a lifetime observer and expert on energy markets examines the roadblocks to what should be an easy and 'natural' transition from oil and natural gas to solar, wind and other sustainable energy sources. In "Turning Oil Green", Dicker outlines the missteps from OPEC, energy companies, Wall Street, Washington and the environmental lobby that have turned the path towards renewable energy into a 'circular firing squad' where everyone, from consumers to investors to our planet itself has come away without the goals they seek.Further, Dicker suggests changes, using our current energy market mechanisms, that will not only satisfy "Green New Deal" advocates and policymakers in Washington, but the shareholders of oil and gas companies as well, and accelerate our energy evolution towards our inevitable - and critically necessary - future of carbon neutral energy.

Shale and Family Through the Boom and Bust

Shale oil and gas extraction technology has caused a large shift in the United States energy landscape over the last decade.

Shale oil and gas extraction technology has caused a large shift in the United States energy landscape over the last decade. While many studies have focused on the economic and environmental impact of shale development, few have examined social changes brought by resource extraction. I examine the influence of shale oil and gas employment as a share of overall county employment on county marriage, divorce, and cohabitation rates. I find evidence of decreased marriage rates and increased divorced rates from 2009-2014, driven largely by nonmetro counties. Implications are discussed.
