Natural Gas Is No Solution

The natural gas industry has been deceiving people about just how wonderful natural gas is as a fuel. It is certainly cleaner than coal or oil, but we can’t continue to use it because of greenhouse gases. The industry suggest that the CO₂ can be removed at the well site and sequestered. Yes, dissolved CO₂, could potentially be removed, but that would do nothing about the CO₂ produced when it burns which is the much bigger problem. They keep referring to it as a clean fuel as if there were no problem with the products of its combustion. It turns into pure CO₂, the #1 greenhouse gas. It has nice qualities such as abundance in North America, easy to ship by pipeline and low sulphur, but we still can’t use it.
