While worldwide supplies of accessible oil are growing, the array of emerging unconventional oil is diversifying. These new oil sources pose important energy, environmental, security, and climate challenges for the private, public, and non-profit sectors.

Carnegie’s Energy and Climate Program held an illuminating discussion about the paradigm shifts associated with new oil abundance in North America and worldwide.

    The U.S. is definitely making a shift towards the advancement of unconventional oil. Thank you for hosting the symposium! I work for a social media research company which did a study on the public sentiment regarding the topic of unconventional oil in the United States. The results were pretty interesting! Viral Technologies measures millions of social media posts and turns them into valuable market insights for various industries. The research is linked here: http://bit.ly/V87gKY
