Good news = bad news in that the Natural Gas & Electric Sector facilities are not as vulnerable to storm damages than our petroleum, COASTAL facilities/refineries. However, fracking for NG to replace petroleum energy sources is bad news as the cradle-to-grave methane pollution in extracting natural gas releases methane speeding up global warming.
Secretary of Energy, Perry, and POTUS need to “get the memos” (and their heads out of Big Oil & Gas’s ass) albeit there was a move to erase any Climate Change wording off of scientist’s work on the heels of this new administration.
Perry & POTUS just need a basic understanding that methane absorbs the sun’s heat warming up OUR Earth’s atmosphere (aka Green House Gas).
Perry & POTUS would be further enlightened and strive to understand the concept of what an ********“Energy Balance for Methane” is and take the lead in creating new jobs and a new economy in providing renewable energy choices.
Here are the memo’s they likely missed AND was unsuccessful in removing the CC words (hah hah):
2015 government study, entitled…
2014 assessment entitled….
2013 Testimony to the Senate Energy and Natural Resources Committee entitled,
But it is very possible Perry & POTUS are onboard with geoengineering technologies like… This 2016 video of John Brennan speaks of Strategic Aerial Injection (SAI) that seeds (sprays from airplanes) the stratosphere with particles that can help reflect the sun’s heat (similar to how volcanoes eruptions do this). SAI can offset/limit/reverse the warming effects of Climate Change from burning fossil fuel to give us (and our economy) more time to switch to renewables. He said it can be done affordably at about $10 billion yearly but does not take care of the acidification of the oceans…listen here… or on youtube, https://www.youtube.com/watch?v=qRJw3Gy3FQY.
