Re: The American Energy Revolution

Switching from oil to NG for a large portion of transportation needs cuts the CO2 emissions in half (maybe a bit more) and makes for less smog forming pollution. This can be done by burning the NG directly in vehicles and/or via increased use of [more]

One thing I would like to know - how sustainable is NG production based on fracking? A fracked well has a decline rate of what, 85% within the first year? If you stop fracking new wells, you run out of production very, very [more]
