Natural gas puts out about half the carbon emissions as coal! Therfore it will be a big part of lowering our carbon emissions! Who benefits? The landowners who have gas rights right here in our region. Screw coal! Safe clean natural gas is going to lead the way and we are going to reap the profits and jobs!
I want to sell my natural gas as well, but keep in mind, you don't have a pile of natural gas laying in storage beside the plant, if something bad happens. The light are out possibly for an extended period of time. The new style furnaces won't light without electric, so no heat either.
Anyone who thinks, solar, wind and NG are all we need, better do some research.
We need coal as well and FERC is finally starting to wise up.
AND Co2, why on earth would we want to start regulating something that every living plant on the face of the earth needs to survive........
WAKE UP AMERICA.............
Its not the greenie's we have to worry about now, its the Brownie's
NG generating plants won't get built overnight and we need pipelines to feed them. Pipelines are a new favorite target of environmentalists so many will be slow to get built. Coal plants like WW Sammis spent millions to install clean coal technology, we need them to keep electric costs down in the interim. Not to mention there's thousands of coal miners who need their jobs back. I want to see our use of natural gas go up too but in the meantime I want to keep my electric bill stable.
Agreed! This will take time but I doubt coal is going to be the best choice of wall street. Natural gas will lead the way. It is not just about electrical power. Coal at one time was used to heat homes but that went the way of buggy whips. I think you are right about the pipelne issue but once they are in natural gas will continue to grow as a clean energy.
