Reduced cost of natural gas delays conversion to renewable energy

Good, America is reducing emissions [“The real energy revolution shrinking carbon dioxide emissions? It’s fracking,” Opinion, June 29].  However, burning natural gas is not the answer.  Fracking operations burn excess methane in flares, and methane (a more potent greenhouse gas) is leaked directly into the atmosphere.

The reduced cost of natural gas delays our conversion to renewable sources of energy.

A revenue-neutral fee on CO2 with dividends returned to households would free us from a flood of gas by making fossil fuels more expensive.  This is what we need.

We pat ourselves on the back while our planet burns.

Marty Bishop, Port Orchard
