Chris McGill, Vice President Policy Analysis for the American Gas Association

On Tuesday, April 9th, Chris McGill, an energy supply expert and vice-president of Policy Analysis for the American Gas Association, announced the results of a two year study of the nation's supply of natural gas.  This report shows that supplies of natural gas are at an all-time high. I spoke with McGill on Thursday, and talked about some of the things which were revealed in the report. I also asked him about 'frakking', and whether there is any way to be sure that this practice of getting to natural gas is not harming the environment. Tune it to hear our conversation.
