Professor Anthony Ingraffea, who was named one of Time Magazine's “People Who Mattered” for his 2011 scientific paper that warned of the risks of natural gas fracking and appears in Gasland 2 discussing his research, has penned a powerful op-ed in The New York Times speaking out against the danger posed by the ongoing natural gas boom. In the piece, Ingraffea criticizes President Obama's insistence that natural gas is a necessary bridge fuel to get us off of coal, instead calling it a "gangplank to more warming." Burning less coal is absolutely necessary, but the crux of the problem with natural gas is that it releases methane into the atmosphere, which behaves differently in the atmosphere than carbon dioxide, trapping more heat and therefore exacerbating the warming we must stop.
