Gem of the Day 12/6: Two Aggies Make "Top 100 Global Thinkers" List

We know there are lots of really smart people in Aggieland.

Foreign Policy magazine has just announced its "top 100 global thinkers" and the list includes two Aggies.

George P. Mitchell, a 1940 Texas A&M distinguished petroleum engineering graduate, and Terry Engelder, who earned a Ph.D. in geology at Texas A&M in 1973 share the 36th spot on the list.

According to editors with the magazine, they men were specifically cited for their key roles that led to the process of fracking -- which is breaking up shale containing natural gas deposits.

That development, they say, led to quote -- "reorder the global balance of energy and the political power that comes with it."
