No other source of energy has been responsible for more CO2 reductions over the past 15 years in the United States than natural gas. Natural gas provides a solution to growing concerns about climate change and the future of our planet.
Thanks to increased efficiency, the U.S. power sector has significantly lowered its emissions of carbon dioxide and other air pollutants, while continued innovation and new technologies have enabled the U.S. to safely and efficiently produce and use more of its own energy resources. Through the responsible use of abundant, domestic fuels like natural gas, the United States has prevented more than 3.3 billion metric tons of carbon dioxide emissions over the past 15 years.
Natural gas provides a solution to growing concerns about climate change and the future of our planet. It is also is the perfect partner for renewable energy. As we expand the use of wind, solar and other renewable sources of energy, natural gas is a necessary source of backup energy when the sun isn’t shining and the wind isn’t blowing and renewable sources can’t meet demand.
Natural gas provides a natural environmental advantage.
