Natural Gas Is The Bridge Fuel To Nowhere reports Seth Zuckerman atClimateCast.
The abundance of cheap natural gas would do little to slow climate change, says a new study. Five independent computer models that simulated the impact of abundant gas on the world economy found carbon emissions and global warming pressures would remain virtually unchanged.
The reason: cheap gas would result in higher energy use, and slow down the adoption of clean energy such as wind and solar. This research echoes a recent study’s similar findings for the U.S.
OO Low Oil Prices Could Spike Carbon Emissions through increased consumption.
