    The economic development of one country is dependent upon the ability of the authorities to set up a highly suitable, competitive and reliable electricity sector. Why is natural gas better than coal boilers?

    Hello everyone, I love this article because I have the same opinion as the blogger. I think natural gas is better than coal boilers. I suggest we start using them. Hopefully this site will provide articles that tackle about how we can start using natural gas.

    Gotta love when multiple people join at once to support some random post linking to someone's blog.

    This could have gone into The Carbon Crunch thread - although the name of the thread didn't make it so obvious it was about the use of gas, referencing The Carbon Crunch: How We're Getting Climate Change Wrong - and How to Fix it: Amazon.co.uk: Dieter Helm: Books - which proposes the aggressive use of natural gas to replace coal.

    I said in that thread

    I think that Helm is wrong. I don't believe the actual and full emissions profile for gas, including fugitive emissions, is fully known. It is very dependent on the maintenance of high standards from initial drilling through to final combustion to be much less than coal and if deployed around the world I'd be surprised if those standards would be maintained in all but a few regions.

    Commitment to gas means a multi-decade commitment to using what is still a significant contributor to CO2 emissions, say 50 years. That's either going to carry us well past where emissions need to be drastically cut or else leave us with a whole lot of stranded gas power stations. Gas may be able to meet near term interim emissions reduction goals but can't deliver longer term ones. As backup to renewables, it looks a bit better but even that has to be considered an interim measure and not be used as the excuse to fail to invest sufficiently in near to zero emissions solutions.
