I am against natural gas expansion and any expansion of fossil fuel use in general. Renewable energy technologies are available such as geothermal, solar, and wind energy and others together with energy storage. These are safer technologies that avoid pollution, allow communities to have energy security, and contribute to climate change mitigation. Also, when we install renewable energy technologies, we build local economies by supporting our clean energy industry. Our clean energy industry has the potential to be internationally competitive but we have to support it at home. We have no reason to install more natural gas or fossil fuel based systems. Instead, we should be converting existing fossil fuel systems to clean energy systems plus storage while focusing on energy efficiency.
