White House Officials Laud Natural Gas

Two White House officials voiced their support of natural gas this week, Politico reports.


John Podesta, an Obama adviser and former president of Center for American Progress, said at a meeting with reporters:
If you oppose all fossil fuels and you want to turn that switch off tomorrow, that is a completely impractical way of moving toward a clean-energy future. . . . With all due respect to my friends in the environmental community, if they expect us to turn off the lights and go home, that’s sort of an impractical suggestion.


And White House Office of Science and Technology policy director John Holdren said:
The basic story on methane, including from the LNG sector, is that the emissions are definitely big enough to be worth reducing, but they’re not big enough to imperil the advantage that natural gas has over coal as a way to generate electricity. . . . Obviously, the longer the world delays in taking aggressive action to reduce emissions, the more challenging it becomes to meet that target. And I would say it is now very challenging indeed. But what is perfectly clear is we know the direction in which we need to go. We need to reduce emissions and have a variety of tools for doing that, and we are using as many of them as we can.

The NG industry is by far the biggest beneficiary of the AGW/CC scam.

I predict the next huge honkin' meteor that rams this cracked eggshell (eons from now I pray) will cause skyscrapers to fall coast to coast and the yolk will be on the entire human race.
