America's Future Natural Gas Economy: Promoting the Next Energy Breakthrough April 6th Event

America’s abundance of shale natural gas represents a historic opportunity for the United States to achieve a burst of clean economic growth—and gives American energy security and independence a new meaning.

Will natural gas serve as an essential bridge in the coming era of clean renewable energy sources? Four panels of experts discussed how the transition to natural gas as a leading power source and industrial feedstock will impact key sectors of the American economy.

George Allen, former governor and U.S. senator from Virginia, keynoted the conference. Energy entrepreneur, financier, and philanthropist T. Boone Pickens took part in a lunchtime dialogue on America’s natural gas future with Hudson Senior Fellow Arthur Herman.
