    One thought on “The Green and the Black: America's Energy Revolution and What It Might Mean for You and the World”

    1. A must readThis book is a stupendous achievement by a very thoughtful and knowledgable participant in the energy revolution that has been going on in this country for the last decade. It needs to be widely read and discussed.

    2. provocative and attention-keeping read. I may have missed over it, but working at Mitchell Energy at the time, I know that what enabled development of the Barnett shale in Wise County was a very advantageous gas sales contract, and that allowed for the high costs of fracking the tight rock. I found the storytelling somewhat frustrating because of the even handed treatment of both oil and gas producers and frack protesters, but I have to admit that's a more accurate reflection of the reality.

    3. A 360-degree analysis of the current energy landscape, delivered with clarity and wit.Sernovitz is in a weird position. Because he works for the financial wing of the oil and gas industry, he knows a lot more about what's going on with it than the average person. However, he's also surrounded by people who, while knowledgeable in the field, don't always take the average person's concerns very seriously. Is there any common ground between the people who drill for gas and oil and the people who pr [...]

    4. I chose to read The Green and the Black not because I am pro-fracking, but because I wanted to learn more about it. Frack has become a four-letter word--despite the fact that it's actually five letters--and there is much contention surrounding its environmental impact. I have wind source energy in my house, and I try to do my part to be environmentally responsible, but I do like a hot shower in the morning, and I drive an SUV to work, so part of me feels like a bit of a hypocrite if I say I am a [...]

    5. As an environmentalist I felt I needed to educate myself on the alternative point of view of fracking and oil/gas shale development. This book definitely gives that perspective and at times tries to sympathize with the protests to Big Oil, but it's easy to see what side of the debate Sernovitz is on.Sometimes I was tempted to stop reading because of the audacity of the claims that Sernovitz makes - the bizarre twisting of information to support your claims that both sides in the debate do - "The [...]

    6. Understand what fracking is really about, how it affects the industry, the globe, climateHow it's done, how people got lucky or unluckyJuxtaposed against competitive factors, economics, geopolitics.Very engaging and fun read - the author is super hilariousBut got a little tedious in parts - book could have been shorter.Note: Didnt know the beauty of natural gas vs coal, shale gas's effect on coal use, global potential fracking destinations, US's amazing ability to adapt

    7. An author with one foot on each side of the issue — a self-proclaimed liberal New Yorker who works in the finance end of the oil/fracking business — examines the history and future of ‘Fracking’ from both a global/financial perspective and also a local/environmental viewpoint.I'm sure zealots on either side will find something (or many things) to dislike, but most should find an evenhanded discussion of this new (well, it's really not so new) and controversial topic.
