Can Natural Gas Contribute Towards a More Sustainable World?

In recent years the natural gas industry has developed technologies which have opened up the possibilities of tapping into gases previously considered to be too difficult or too costly to utilise. Last year at the 25th World Gas Conference one of the key

So despite the many benefits it's still pretty much a moot question because there's always that fracking controversy.......

No, natural gas depends on fracking. It's not even part of the solution, just part of the problem.

With so many better choices, it's time to get with renewable only.

Tell me about fracking when there's no chemicals involved, no contaminated water lakes, no wildlife killoff...Better yet let's stick with solar, wind, etc. Thank you.

Not all natural gas comes from fracking. But the natural gas that has been easily obtainable has nearly run out. Western Europe has been drilling for it for many decades now. It isn't harmful to the industry or homes because an odour is added to it. Most of the houses in the Netherlands have gas pipes running to it underground for cooking and/or heating. Quite a few cars run on natural gas too. But our government has been selling off our gas to make money and now we have to import from Russia. Fracking is the next option and because we depend on gas so much, but resist fracking, the government will probably push it down our throats.

The cost of fracking and the environmental damage over time plus the health issues involved for those in the surrounding areas and inadvertent areas is immeasurable. It basically in the spirit of the law amounts to manslaughter and murder 2. The energy companies go to such lengths to deny any responsibility or remuneration let alone willingly admit that they are liable. Most of the harvested NG goes to overseas consumers and not to the benefit of the American public. National energy freedom = in the interest of national security = an excuse to commit terracide and genocide or whatever else they can think of without any responsibility. Our leaders are prevaricators of the first water. In the intelligence community it's called plausible deniability.

Never as long as there is fracking - it's time to move on to another way....
