  • Natural gas will be necessary to bringing cleaner energy sources to markets in developing economies which will subsequently lower emissions.
  • While some on the environmental left have chosen to demonize fossil fuels, natural gas will continue to play a role in lowering emissions worldwide and bringing billions of people out of poverty.

“Just as natural gas has competed with coal as the prime fuel for electricity in the last decades, renewables are putting pressure on the blue, clean-burning source of energy. The competition is fierce and will likely get worse. Yet, it is still too early to discount gas.”
