  • From BubleQe:

    @levinepmc @JustinTrudeau @gmbutts @cathmckenna I’ve researched many fuel types, GHG footprint and availability / reliability & bar none, Natural Gas / LNG is by far top of the food chain. Nuclear is a close second (low/no GHG’s), but economics are a bit challenged. Hydrogen likely to play a role, but it’s many years out.

  • From quea_ali:

    @WBrettWilson Anyone who has done any actual research in to this topic knows all this already, They are just angry that the parts they omit (i.e building of natural gas plants, using coal, burning tires etc etc etc) are now exposed), and their Green is now not so Green.

  • From CostaSamaras:

    We literally don’t have time for a “what’s worse natural gas vs coal?” timeline today, this week, this year, this decade. All emissions have to get to zero, full stop. The rest is largely uninteresting now.ᴮᵗʷ ᵗʰᵉ ᵃⁿˢʷᵉʳ ⁱˢ ᵐᵒˢᵗ ˡⁱᵏᵉˡʸ ᶜᵒᵃˡ ⁱˢ ʷᵒʳˢᵉ
