A History of Natural Gas



Natural gas has enormous potential as a versatile energy source. While it’s had a history of powering electric generators and heating stove tops, natural gas is growing in use as an efficient fuel that also powers cars and trucks. But what exactly is natural gas? Watch this video to learn more about the history of this clean, affordable, abundant, American fuel and the high-tech process used to retrieve it.

    100 years left isn't plentiful, I could be alive in that time I mean fuck sake and I don't quite trust them to do it too responsibly after all you gotta expand profits, so fuck this regulation, I won't be alive when the world ends is a mentality you gotta assume will be as prevalent as ants on an anthill

    I was thinking about NG until I heard all that mumbo-jumbo about millions of years.

    Thank you for making such a clear video about natural gases and fracking. It is very educational and I am supportive of natural gases now.

    The producers of this video deliberately conceal major environmental impacts such as:

    WATER CONTAMINATION & POTENIAL MIGRATION OF CHEMICALS
    Just recently drinking water was contaminated in Texas and Pennsylvania – ALTHOUGH the drilling company used this alledgedly "secure protection tubes": http://www.theguardian.com/environment/2014/sep/15/drinking-water-contaminated-by-shale-gas-boom-in-texas-and-pennslyvania-study
    It's not the first time that the cement is leaking and causing high rates of water contamination.
    Hydraulic fracturing generally needs incredible large quantities of water, and thereby threatens water supplies and aquatic life all around.

    AIR POLLUTION
    Also, the gas is not as environmentally friendly as claimed: Air emissions from hydraulic fracturing are related to methane leaks originating from wells, and emissions from diesel or natural gas powered equipment such as compressors, drilling rigs, and pumps.Transportation of water and sand by trucks can involve high volumes of particulate air pollution.

    SEISMOLOGY
    Hydraulic fracturing causes induced seismicity called microseismic events or microearthquakes. These microseismic events are often used to map the horizontal and vertical extent of the fracturing.The magnitude of these events is usually too small to be detected at the surface, although the biggest micro-earthquakes may have the magnitude of about -1.6 (Mw). However, as of late 2012, there have been three instances of hydraulic fracturing, through induced seismicity, triggering quakes large enough to be felt by people: one each in the United States, Canada, and England.

    Not even mentioning the risk of mishandled waste…

    In past 100 years factories car maker in the U.S , they only maker cars, trucks engines run on oil & gasoline. This has been addicted oil from OPEC worldwide for long. The American people only buy cars and trucks run by gasoline or oil. Today Tesla motors designer electric cars runs with high- tech batteries.
    Tesla car is the best electric car. New high-tech of Tesla cars, will replace gasoline engines cars for America future.     
    In past six year since July, 2008. PickensPlan has makes proceed for American renewable energy independence.
    Boone Pickens Says: “1.9 Million American has signed up, supported for the PickensPlan, keep go on! More and more Trucks and buses are switching to natural gas".
    "you get the 8.5 million trucks and fleet vehicles on domestic natural gas"
    Hope next step is transfer 8.5 million of 18-wheelers trucks, engine run on diesel (OPEC oil), convert all engines run on Natural Gas (DNG).
    Americans people wake up, education themselves to make a change for renewable energy independence in long term. This also will benefits for many American new generations, in 21 Century.

    Thanks for sharing video.
