In this month’s employment analysis, The Hamilton Project examines how dramatic increases in the domestic production of natural gas and oil could impact the U.S. energy sector, the environment, and employment. Between 2007 and 2011, U.S. employment in oil and gas extraction increased by 28,000 jobs, and by an additional 45,000 jobs in mining support activities. To further examine the role of natural gas and oil in shaping U.S. energy policy, The Hamilton Project will host a June 13th forum at Stanford University including a range of thought leaders from the private sector, the regulatory community, and academia.
