    I agree with everything except one. “Natural gas is a transition” to cleaner fuels. The only reason it’s a transition is to politically buy off the big coal burning utilities. Otherwise the use of CNG for vehicles is likely to be the next “corn ethanol” debacle. The major fleet operators don’t like it and see the advantages of second generation electrical vehicles.

    Big coal plants claim they’re going to convert to natural gas. The only ones who don’t seem to understand the lie are our electeds. Perhaps this will happen but I’m not holding my breath.

    And, by the way, what about those earthquakes in Fayetville, Arkansas?

    Fracking gas worse than coal on climate, states a study by Cornell Prof. Robert Howarth.
