U.S. Shale Gas Development Brings Global Geopolitical Benefits Too, an Industrial Info News Alert

SUGAR LAND, TX--(Marketwire - Jul 26, 2011) - Written by John Egan for Industrial Info Resources (Sugar Land, Texas) -- U.S. diplomats have long differed on the most effective ways to contain Russia and Iran. A side benefit of the domestic shale gas revolution is that it has countered the geopolitical ambitions of these countries, something that hundreds of billions of dollars in military spending has not been able to do.

That's one of the conclusions of a recently issued study of shale gas and U.S. national security from the James A. Baker III Institute of Public Policy at Rice University (Houston, Texas). Authored by Ken Medlock, Amy Myers Jaffe and Peter Hartley, this study also recognizes how the shale gas revolution has significantly changed assumptions and investments in energy infrastructure in the U.S.
