Obama’s Natural Gas ‘Bridge’ May Be On The Verge Of Collapse reports Jeff Spross at Climate Progress. Although burning methane emits less greenhouse gas than coal or oil, this incredibly potent greenhouse gas in itself leaks into the atmosphere during extraction and processing, so the total emissions load is still problematic. Then there’s the price – the more you mine it from one well, the more difficult and expensive it is to do so. Ultimately, you have to drill lots of short-lived wells, an expensive undertaking. Gas is only good as a very SHORT bridge – so let’s race over it to renewable clean energy ASAP!
Join the swelling numbers of voters TELLING Congress they’ll vote for Clean Energy candidates here: http://signon.org/sign/we-are-the-clean-99?source=c.em.cp&r_by=487176 . This is an ongoing campaign (the next Congressional election is this year!) so please, spread the word. It’s our way of telling Congress that a strong clean energy voting bloc is out there. This is how YOU can make a difference.
