The Misguided Attacks on Natural Gas

The Misguided Attacks on Natural Gas

The Heritage Foundation’s Nick Loris explains that attacks on natural gas are misguided and harmful.

The C3 Take
  • Natural gas is a reliable and affordable energy source that promotes human flourishing and economic prosperity.
  • Natural gas has reduced our domestic emissions significantly and continues to get cleaner.
  • American Liquified Natural Gas (LNG) is cleaner than Russian LNG and should be a part of reducing emissions globally.

“Furthermore, natural gas is responsible for America’s drop in carbon-dioxide emissions, and as production increased significantly, methane emissions from natural gas systems decreased 23.7 percent from 1990 to 2018. Whether it is traditional pollutants or greenhouse-gas emissions, more natural gas is moving America in the right direction. Natural gas exports are even paying environmental dividends around the world because the LNG is cleaner than burning coal or Russian-piped gas.”
