In today's edition of the Heartland Daily Podcast, Heartland Science Director Jay Lehr joins host H. Sterling Burnett to talk about the abundant supply of oil and gas that exists due to fracking and in the future, Shale rock development and methane hydrates.

Lehr argues we could have a 1000 year supply of fossil fuels. Lehr also explains why who owns the mineral rights makes a difference in when and to what extent oil and gas development takes place and how it also effects the environmental impacts from oil and gas production.
