Unconventional gas - energy saviour or environmental problem?

The new “gas rush” created by the rise of unconventional gas technologies is a politically-charged issue. This seminar will explore questions such as how important might unconventional gas (CSG and shale gas) be to Australia’s economy and domestic energy sector, what are the implications for our energy market, and what are the environmental risks and can they be managed?
