Natural Gas – The Cornell University Report

January 21, 2012

All should read the recent report by Cornell University, dated 01.016.2012, titled:

“Hydraulic Fracturing News: Latest Cornell Study Concludes that Greenhouse Gas Footprint of Shale Gas is Much Lower than that of Coal”

Except: “Several months ago, a group of Cornell University professors led by Robert Howarth published an article stating that shale gas has a higher greenhouse gas (GHG) footprint than coal. But subsequent studies reached the opposite result, concluding that shale gas has not just a lower, but a much lower GHG footprint than coal. Now, a new study from Cornell University concludes that the earlier Cornell study by Howarth was “seriously flawed,” and that shale gas has a GHG footprint that is only one-third to one-half that of coal.”

    Do you know if there is any real concern about fracking chemicals and the environment? There are a lot pros and cons on this too. If the fracking is minimal we desperately need the to able to produce energy.
    Thank you,

    Hi. excuse the automatic translator.I would have three prototypes to be built, in my opinion is worth more.My requests don’t seem so exaggerated.Ask a normal salary Fund to create these projects.If they work properly, and only in this case, I want to important figures of money.The video is a part of one of my prototypes.This is only a hobby I want to become a concrete possibility of work being for me a great passion.

    With Respect.

    Michele Stragà.
