By Nicolas Descoqs on Paris Innovation Review

The growth in unconventional hydrocarbons has passed from adolescence and is approaching an age of maturity. Yet, optimism must be offset the concerns for those living closest to the revolution. Glancing back over the North American and Australian experiences some preliminary conclusions can be drawn. While best practices are making a contribution to sustainable production the equation will remain incomplete without fearless public debate of the subject.

Au-delà des bonnes pratiques et du sérieux des acteurs industriels, une question majeure est la qualité de la délibération publique. Les expériences américaines et australiennes permettent de faire un premier point.
