Global Natural Gas Boom Alone Won't Slow Climate Change

Comprehensive analysis shows that natural gas could displace both coal and low-emitting energy sources over the long term

October 2014
An analysis of global energy use, economics and the climate shows that without new climate policies, expanding the current bounty of inexpensive natural gas alone would not slow the growth of global greenhouse gas emissions worldwide over the long term. The researchers, working at PNNL's Joint Global Change Research Institute and their international collaborators, conducted modeling studies showing a global abundance of inexpensive natural gas would also accelerate economic growth and expand overall energy use.
