Nautural gas should be last substance burned in generating electricity, because it is least polluting.
So far, in this discussion, I have not talked about nuclear energy. While it does not pollute the air, it has its own set of problems.
These include potential for nuclear plant meltdowns and long term storage of radioactive waste.
I go on record as being against building any more nuclear reactors. We will have to continue their use until they reach their design life.
It will take decades converting to Small Energy. As part of this process oil production in the world must be drastically reduced.
Evenually oil will be used to produce only petrochemicals. Not as a fuel.
However, petrochemicals like plastic bags pollute environment and should not be manufactured.
This will be topic of futher essay as I will write about Water Pollution.
