The author comments on the U.S. energy policy proposed by John Hofmeister, former president of Shell Oil Co. and member of the U.S. Energy Security Council. He notes that Hofmeister predicts a global energy demand which will out space supply, leading to gasoline shortages, blackouts and instability of an energy crisis. He believes that if Hofmeister's prediction is right, shale gas can be considered. He warns, however, that shale gas has its well-known caveats.
