Brookings Mountain West presents "The U.S. Oil and Gas Boom: Implications for the Intermountain West" a talk by Adele Morris, fellow and policy director, Climate and Energy Economics Project.

This lecture will explore the implications of the dramatic increase in oil and gas production in the United States with an emphasis on the economic and environmental outcomes in the Intermountain west. The lecture will discuss the revenues states and households receive from oil and gas production, the effect on labor markets, and the broader macroeconomic outcomes. It will also review concerns about greenhouse gas emissions and the local environmental implications of hydraulic fracturing and other production activities with an eye to assessing the tradeoffs that arise in the recent expansion of the domestic energy sector.
