I am currently on the first half of my lecture tour on ethics as you are reading this article. By the end of October, I will have traveled to four of the AAPG section meetings: Rocky Mountain, Mid-Continent, Eastern and the Gulf Coast Association of Geological Societies as the Division of Professional Affairs ethics lecturer. As the DPA section luncheon speaker, my plan is to also present this lecture at both the Pacific and Southwest section meetings next April. I am making this tour to connect with members across the country, and because of my strong belief that ethics form the core of professionalism and the bedrock of civilization.

Some of the world’s largest oil companies have pumped up their shale investments recently, targeting increased future production from shale oil plays. At the same time, some independents have been cutting back on shale spending, in part because of lower oil and gas prices and shareholder demands for improved returns. The result is a not-so-subtle shift toward shale dominance by Big Oil.
