Hi again Andrew,

We’re sorry you didn’t feel our last response answered your question. We’re happy to explore this area further.

Natural gas is indeed a fossil fuel, but it is the cleanest burning of all that are available. For that reason, many overseas countries are looking to natural gas as a transitional fuel that will help them to move away from coal powered electricity generation.

You may be interested in this recent piece, which was published in The Vancouver Sun by Elizabeth and Richard Muller, who founded the non-profit Berkeley Earth to study global warming and climate change. That piece can be found here.

We hope this answers your question.
