The second edition of the Transition Free Press is out now! What's more I'm honoured to have been asked to write the main article that appeared on the front page. The gist is that shale gas fracking in the US has led to a glut of cheap coal on world markets, which is being burned up by China and others. Next time anyone tells you shale gas is 'green' tell them that!
In the course of researching the article I got to speak to some very interesting people (not all of whom are mentioned in the final article). One of them was Carl Shoupe, a third generation coal miner from Kentucky and outspoken critic of mountaintop removal and other acts of grand vandalism. You can see him talking in the video below.
Anyway, you can read the latest edition online by clicking here.
