Natural gas is being included in the group of alternative sources of energy production. It is being categorized similarly to the sun, the water and the wind. Today, alternative sources of energy production hydro-electricity, wind and solar power are being exploited slowly but surely. A new entrant to this group is of course natural gas. It is not nearly as contentious as the use of nuclear power.
But natural gas extraction and installation does need to be managed with care. If the natural gas extraction is made responsibly and the subsequent natural gas piping installations are done with similar responsibility and with the utmost professionalism then it could be well on its way to making a positive contribution towards saving the planet. Provided the gas is stored and distributed correctly, it makes no dent on the carbon footprint.
Provided that the extracted, distributed gas is being used for sustainable purposes, it will not be making a negative impact on the earth’s carbon footprint. It can thus be categorized alongside solar and wind power, as well as hydro-electric power use. Nuclear power has been cautiously included in some areas of the world while many others have chosen to either start discarding it or avoiding the acquisition of it altogether.
Natural gas is not expensive, and that is where the commercial interest mostly lies. Domestic consumers stand to benefit equably too. It is quite possible for them to be far less reliant on the local grid than ever before by making exponential use of a qualified natural gas piping and infrastructure installation. It has been done before and the results have proven to be quite fruitful indeed.
There is no reason why this cannot be pulled off. Used responsibly, it’ll save the world.
