Study: Switching from coal to natural gas would not significantly help climate!

RELATED ARTICLES Coal or Natural Gas, Climate Effects September 8, 2011 12:26 PM Sun-powered device converts CO2 into fuel February 18, 2009 09:24 AM Methane may be more important than CO2 in warming August 12, 2011 07:00 AM Cow burps help Argentines study climate change July 9, 2008 09:28 AM Relying more on natural gas than on coal would not significantly slow down the effects of climate change, even though direct carbon dioxide emissions would be less, a new study has found.
