Shale Gas Production and Its Many Implications

2021-11-12T16:33:05+00:00November 12, 2021|Categories: Greenhouse gases, Natural gas|

What is shale gas? Shale gas is a form of natural gas extracted from deposits in shale rock. It is no different to natural gas from other reserves. Fossil fuel companies extract it for exactly the same purposes. Burning it generates electricity, powers homes and supplies gas stoves. Heavy industries also use it to make materials and chemicals. Only the [...]

What Steps Can We Take to Increase Carbon Reduction in Our Atmosphere?

2021-10-11T22:32:49+00:00October 11, 2021|Categories: Carbon Neutral, Greenhouse gases|

There are two ways to increase carbon reduction in the atmosphere. The first is to reduce emissions of carbon dioxide (CO2). The second is to improve methods to remove CO2 already in the atmosphere. Both methods are fundamental to combatting climate change. It is irrefutable that humans have caused about 1.07°C of global warming since the Industrial Revolution. Releasing greenhouse [...]

Why Is Methane Gas Worse for the Environment Than Other Gases? (Video)

2021-10-11T22:35:01+00:00October 10, 2021|Categories: Greenhouse gases|

While conversations often focus on carbon dioxide, this video shows how harmful methane can be to our environment. Which greenhouse gas is worse, carbon dioxide or methane? Most conversations about climate change focus on the harm that carbon dioxide (CO2) causes. However, methane gas is actually responsible for almost one-quarter of the global warming from greenhouse gases. Even worse, total [...]

Butane vs Propane: Pros and Cons

2021-10-11T22:35:50+00:00September 23, 2021|Categories: Fossil Fuels, Greenhouse gases|

In 2019, India became the world’s second-largest consumer of a new type of fuel called liquefied petroleum gas (LPG). The government of India has promoted its use across the country. It says that LPG, made from propane and butane, can transform lives. But which is better when comparing propane vs butane? The gases are similar in many ways, but have [...]

How Common Are LNG Exports in Australia?

2021-10-28T08:38:41+00:00September 21, 2021|Categories: Greenhouse gases, Natural gas, Natural gas prices|

Liquefied natural gas (LNG) is natural gas chilled to around -161°C to make it a liquid. The quantity of LNG exports from Australia is the highest in the world. In March 2021, the country’s monthly LNG exports reached record highs. The fossil fuel industry portrays natural gas and its products as a “cleaner” energy source. They say it produces “less [...]

What Are the Most Common Types of Greenhouse Gases?

2021-10-11T22:39:07+00:00September 13, 2021|Categories: Global Warming, Greenhouse gases, Natural gas|

Since the mid-nineteenth century, we have been aware that greenhouse gases affect the Earth’s climate. In 1856, an American woman, Eunice Foote, wrote that changing amounts of carbon dioxide (CO2) in the atmosphere could change the climate. Therefore, this concept is nothing new. Yet, we continue to emit more greenhouse gases into the atmosphere every day. What is a greenhouse [...]
