Can Eliminating Methane Emissions Make Natural Gas Clean?
Once accepted as the “clean” fossil fuel that would provide the bridge between an energy system based on fossil fuels and one based on renewable energy, natural gas is less favorable among many environmentalists due to its contribution to greenhouse gas emissions.
If Hydrogen Is Energy’s Future, Where Will It Come From?
As the world grapples with how to reduce greenhouse gas emissions, there is heightened interest in hydrogen as part of the solution. But how is hydrogen produced and how will the hydrogen production industry likely evolve in the future?
Do We Have the Tools to Address Climate Change?
A report by the Intergovernmental Panel on Climate Change (IPCC) identifies many options now available that offer substantial potential to reduce the greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions that are resulting in Earth's temperature rise and subsequent climate change.
Can Natural Gas Utilities Be Part of the Decarbonization Solution?
Many gas utilities feel that their once-stable business models are threatened with a future of shrinking throughput driven by government policies and customers choosing electrification. In response, some gas utilities have announced their own decarbonization plans.
Sucking Carbon out of Thin Air – Reality or Fantasy?
Scientists agree that to avoid the worst impacts of climate change caused by humans emitting greenhouse gases (GHG), we must dramatically reduce the amount of carbon in the atmosphere. One new approach to carbon reduction is to utilize a machine that sucks carbon out of the air. This is called Direct Air Capture (DAC).
Understanding the Facts about Greenhouse Gases
President Biden recently stated that addressing climate change is a key part of his agenda. So now is a good time to review the facts surrounding greenhouse gases that cause climate change. 
Does Renewable Natural Gas Have the Potential To Address Natural Gas’ Greenhouse Gas Problems?
Natural gas is mostly composed of methane, which is a greenhouse gas that is 20 to 80 times as potent as carbon dioxide (CO2). This means natural gas emissions add to global warming and climate change. But renewable natural gas or RNG is carbon neutral or even carbon negative. Can RNG be a fuel source that actually reduces greenhouse gas emissions?
