Yes, Natural Gas has a lower carbon footprint than pretty much any other fuel. But if those energy executives are really rooting for a fight then they would be better advised to start attacking the real problem. Which is not carbon but rather the madness surrounding it. We need education on the benefits of carbon, we need education on the true drivers of climate change, heck we need a better schooling system that teaches about critical thinking and not regurgitating others mantras. Reliable and affordable energy has value – time for people to know it. Time for the energy industry to pick up the pieces.
Execs are making the case that fossil fuels from US shale have a lower carbon footprint than imports.
