Wow! I just read on the news how horrible coal and oil are for our environment. I wish there was another fossil fuel we could use instead.
I know, there’s a fossil fuel called natural gas. Let’s check it out!
There is a large amount of natural gas available around the world. Even more than renewable resources!
The large amount of natural gas is enough to sustain our energy us for a long time! Did you know that natural gas makes up 29% of the world’s energy!?
Natural Gas is a vital resource used in daily products!
Not only is natural gas useful in energy, it can also be used in paints, fertilizers, medicines, and propane. Also, some special cars are powered by natural gas.
Natural Gas can run more efficiently when burned.
It’s way more efficient than burning coal or gas-fired power plants. Not only that, but it’s also cleaner!
Some may argue that homes near a fracking site may have contaminated water from fracking fluid that could’ve seeped out of the pipes.
However, The Energy Department has been working hard to try to make natural gas and hydraulic fracturing as safe as possible.
Natural Gas is the cleanest fossil fuel and lets 50-60% less pollutants into the air compared to coal or oil. Not only that, there’s also a large abundance of natural gas to sustain human needs for years!
