David Hughes speaking at Cornell in May.2012
Energy Sustainability dilemma: – http://www.youtube.com/watch?v=z4aaOPWvw3I

This is a fascinating talk by a research fellow at the Post Carbon Institute, given at Cornell-5-2-12,
“Energy Sustainability Dilemma : Powering the Future in a Finite World”
Most of the easy energy is gone. This was oil which was plentiful, and easy to get, with a very high net Energy Return on Investment (EROI).
Now we are pursuing Deep Ocean Drilling, Tar Sands, Fracked Shale Gas, etc. Are we heading for a dead end? Where the it takes more energy to get the gas then the gas itself holds?
What about Wind and Solar? Can they make up the difference? (see below as well)

This talk is somewhat technical, but essential if we are to understand our energy options as our society pushes for more energy

\Methane leaking from fracking Wells

The intersection between hydraulic fracturing and Climate change
Alternatives for energy resources

This is a useful short video by Prof. Tony Ingraffea of Cornell U. on how methane leaking from fracking wells is speeding climate change.
