In this timely exposÈ, author Julian Darley takes a hard-hitting look at natural gas as an energy source that rapidly went from nuisance to crutch.

In High Noon for Natural Gas readers will find a critical analysis of government policy on energy, as well as a meticulously researched warning about our next potentially catastrophic energy crisis.

ìWhile much is known about the growing pressures on petroleum supplies, far less is known about natural gas. Julian Darley convincingly demonstrates in this important book, that the long-range future for gas is equally as bleak as that for oil. This invaluable book arrives at a critical juncture.î Michael Klare, author of Resource Wars: The New Landscape of Global Conflict
