The fossil gas industry likes to compare gas to coal, since gas produces less CO2 emissions than coal when one considers just the burning process. Of course, they would not make that comparison with renewable energy. Still, the assumption that fossil gas is “low carbon Low CarbonA term promoted by fossil fuel corporations to convince people that it’s impossible to reach zero carbon emissions, while in fact…Read on اقرأ المزيد ” is shaky, as there are always leakages along the supply chain with significant amounts leaking all the way from when the start of exploration through extraction and transport to kitchens or factories. Even if leakage is kept to 2-3% along the supply chain, the long-term impact of fossil gas on the climate will be more serious than coal. But in any case, given the different time profiles of CO2 and methane emissions Methane EmissionsMethane (CH4) is the main component of fossil gas, making up 96% of its composition. It is also emitted from…Read on اقرأ المزيد , fossil gas cannot be said to be more climate-friendly than coal.
