Will LNG Exports Lock in Gas Dependence for Decades?

  1. Will a lack of LNG exports lock in European industrial collapse and poverty for decades?

      Despite Germany’s stupid decision to shut down working nuclear power plants (while any coal power is still being used), it does look like it will land on its feet.

      Meanwhile, France has become a net importer of electricity in large part due to the very expensive technical (corrosion) problems for much of its aging nuclear fleet. Another factor, of course, is the labor problems, which represent a significant overhead even when those plants are not producing electricity.

    Here we are, a little more than 5 minutes in:

    “But when it comes to emissions, advocates argue LNG is the cleanest fossil fuel, as it produces 40 per cent less carbon dioxide than coal when it’s burned, and 30% less than oil.”

    What a disingenuous talking point.
    From drilling to transport, a lot of natgas leaks out before it gets to the LNG plant.

    BTW, I had my gas cut off after I replaced my gas appliances last year, so I no longer get bills from Texas Gas Service. I do still occasionally get a mailing that asks if I want to buy insurance for gas leaks in the pipes leading up to my home.

    There are so many great reasons to wean buildings and cities off of natural gas rather than have people take it for granted as a way to fuel things.
