Texas Monthly has released its cover for the November issue, which includes my story on how Houston oilman George P. Mitchell changed the world. The issue will be available on newsstands Oct. 24. An online version of the story should be available later this week.
On Nov. 19, I’ll be moderating a 6 p.m. panel discussion at Rice University on the sustainability of hydraulic fracturing. We’ll discuss how long the shale boom may last and how we should use it to prepare for the future. The panelists are Arthur Berman of Labyrinth Consulting, Kenneth Medlock with the Center for Energy Studies at Rice’s Baker Institute, and Scott Tinker, director of the Bureau of Economic Geology at the University of Texas. If you’d like to attend, RSVP here.
