Because commercial natural gas equipment is already mature, we have existing distribution systems, and because clean energy technologies are still relatively new and we are not as familiar with them, it could be cheaper to use natural gas until renewables become cheaper. But once again, this argument doesn't stand up to scrutiny. Our report looks at four "least-cost" pathways to 2050 to get to a GHG emission target that's consistent with two degrees warming. These pathways were developed by reputable agencies like MIT and the International Energy Agency. David Suzuki and Pembina also commissioned their own pathway. What each pathway found was that natural gas use did not increase and, in fact, declined as the least-cost pathways unfolded. In other words, each low carbon future we analyzed used less natural ga...
