'Unconventional' natural gas may help slash CO2 emissions

An "explosion in unconventional gas supply" (so-called "shale gas") may drastically reduce CO2 emissions in the US. (Climate Progress) How? The more natural gas we have, the less we have to rely on burning coal. "Natural gas is the cheapest, low-carbon baseload power around."

If the current rate of shale gas discovery continues, it "may be the single biggest game changer for climate action in the next two decades."

I started pound360 to channel my obsession with vitamins, running and the five senses. Eventually, I got bored focusing on all that stuff, so I came back from a one month hiatus in May of 2007 (one year after launching Pound360) and broadened my mumblings here to include all science.
