Shale Summit The natural gas boom is seen as a big economic boon for Ohio. What's being done to capitalize on economic opportunity and minimize environmental impact? On the next Sound of Ideas, we'll find out what 400-plus attendees plan to discuss during next week's Shale Summit in northeast Ohio. We'll hear from industry experts, academia and environmentalists. We'd love to hear from you, too. Can natural gas revive the rust belt? Safely? Monday morning at 9 with host Mike McIntyre.
