Natural Gas

Abundant and clean...er

Natural gas supplies are growing in the US – due to advances in horizontal well and hydraulic fracturing technologies. This rising supply has led to falling prices, and greater consumption: In just 4 years, gas-fired electricity has replaced a third of coal-fired power. This is big news, since gas produces half the CO2. But some are concerned over water pollution and methane releases, suggesting natural gas is not a completely clean alternative.
