NATURAL GAS "TRUTH" FULL OF LIES


The Un-TRUTH:

  "Natural gas is a clean burning fuel
that produces less greenhouse gas
emissions than coal when burned."

REALLY JUST

The One Big Lie 
dressed up in the industry's
best fecal-marketing package
and blown like
"a mighty wind up America's ass."

TRUTH:  

"We urge caution in viewing natural gas as good fuel choice for the future. Using the best available science, we conclude that
natural gas is no better than coal
and
may in fact be worse than coal
in terms of its greenhouse gas footprint when evaluated over the time course of the next several decades."

Note that both the National Academy of Sciences and
the Council of Scientific Society Presidents have
urged great caution before proceeding with
the development of diffuse natural gas
from shale formations using unconventional technology.
