LNG: Fueling the Green Revolution for a Sustainable Energy Landscape
The energy sector has for many years been destroying our environment through dangerous greenhouse gas (GHG) emissions- notably Nitrogen, Sulfur, and Carbon compounds. These gases come from burning fossil fuels (notably coal and oil) during electricity generation. GHG gases are responsible for blanketing the Earth and trapping the sun’s heat. That’s what has precipitated the global warming menace that has the planet in a chokehold today.
If the energy industry is the key contributor to climate change, it goes without saying that it has to play a vital role in finding the solution. The industry has to embrace sustainable energy sources to reverse the dire impacts of climate change. There’s an urgent need for the energy sector to halve its GHG emissions by 2030. The ultimate goal is to attain net-zero emission targets by 2050. That means we must switch from oil, coal, and other dirty fossil fuels to renewable energy sources such as solar, wind, and water.
But before these sources are sufficient to fuel transportation, manufacturing, and domestic energy needs, we will need a transition fuel that’s clean, sufficient in supply, and affordable. Liquefied natural gas (LNG) is the perfect transition fuel because, although it is a fossil fuel, it emits little to no GHG or pollutants when burning.Read full post
