Gas and oil extraction from shale rock is a rapidly growing industry in Ohio, but it hasn't yet boomed as promised. Is the boom still coming? Or are there reasons -- from geology to the economy -- to worry that the prosperity won't pan out? We'll discuss it on the Sound of Ideas with experts from this week's Shale Gas Conference at Case Western Reserve University. And we'll get their take on the greatest environmental risks of drilling. Host Mike McIntyre leads the conversation, Tuesday at 9am on 90.3.
