NATURAL GAS is:
> Practical and attainable, right here, right now
>America’s second largest energy resource
> The CLEANEST BURNING of all fossil fuels, emitting 45% LESS carbon dioxide than the coal used to generate electricity
>Extremely efficient, with 89% of the energy at the wellhead reaching the end user (to deliver electricity to your home, 78% of the original energy is lost!); this efficiency translates to 60% LESS carbon dioxide emissions than with an all electric home, and improvements in appliance efficiency mean that the typical residential customer uses 20% LESS natural gas than they did 20 years ago.
