An intense and amazingly effective campaign is underway to convince Americans that natural gas is the answer to our energy problems. As a result, a vast network of pipelines is being constructed across the country, millions of Americans are converting their old oil-burning systems to natural gas, and government officials are green-lighting massive new gas-fired power plants. The oil and gas industry, which created the concept of a “bridge fuel” is hoping that their trillion dollar investment will pay off before people find out that over its lifetime, natural gas contributes more to global warming than either oil or coal.
