Age of Gas

Some people forecast a new golden age of fossil fuels…  because of fracking and plentiful shale gas found.

And the very same people see this as a renaissance of the main energy companies for the ext fifty to one hundred years. Admittedly there is a lot of dynamic here and tons of people after it. But I disagree.

Because we’ve got to stop burning things up to get our energy. Burning things up warms up our atmosphere and our planet. It messes up with the climate and causes climate chaos and environmental catastrophes.

We can finally stop looking for things to burn… We are better than this and we have far better science so we can stop doing it.
 First of all shale gas burning produces vast amounts of GHGs and CO2 in the atmosphere.
Secondly shale gas extraction demands more water than what we have available for drinking and agriculture…
Third, shale gas extraction also has huge environmental impacts,
dangerous toxic pollution and other external affiliated costs.
THEREFORE SHALE GAS IS NOT A BENEVOLENT FUEL AND
IT IS NOT GOING TO SAVE THE FOSSIL FUEL INDUSTRY…
NO MATTER HOW MUCH THEY LIKE TO PUMP IT UP AND
PRESENT IT AS GREEN.
Yours,
Pano
PS:
 It’s the same old crap coming from the boys that never learn to dance a new tune and never have met something that they don’t want to burn. People, planet, atmosphere, & your house cat included
