    How to Reduce Carbon Emissions: Drill, or Frack Baby, Frack

    “US emissions have now fallen by 430 Mt (7.7%) since 2006, the largest reduction of all countries or regions. This development has arisen from lower oil use in the transport sector … and a substantial shift from coal to gas in the power sector.”
    So how has this reduction come about? Not through taxing and not through regulation: it’s come about purely as a side effect of market forces. As the shale gas revolution has continued natural gas prices have fallen to very low levels. This has displaced coal as the electricity generating fuel of choice in many areas: there are stories of coal plants shuttering as they simply cannot compete wth the price of gas fired electricity generation.

    NO EPA involved! NO Govt agency just plain old market forces.. supply increases, price declines, coal not used CO2 drops.
    That simple!

    It matters little to none to the enviro-green movement. Natural gas is composed of hydrocarbons and that in itself is not to be tolerated.

    Fracing was not the phenomenon under Bush as it is today. BTW- if the EPA had it's way, fracing would be totally shut down, as would 50% of the oil and natural gas production/gathering/storage facilities in this country.

    Is that a proposition? Because it sure as hell ain't a preposition.
