al Gas Pros Here is a list of the advantages of natural gas Natural Gas Cons Here is a list of the disadvantages of natural gas Natural gas burn more cleaner than fossil fuels – 45% less carbon dioxide with coal and 30% less than fossil fuel. Does not pollute the underground water or pollute the ground when it is burned. Natural gas is use to heat homes, to generate fire for cooking, run with your hot water heater to produce hot water, and to run different appliances. People without natural gas pipe in their homes can use small tanks containing natural gas. Natural gas burn without releasing soot or sulfur dioxide. Natural gas can also be use as a fuel to run cars, trucks and airplanes. It burns cleaner than diesel and gasoline. Natural gas can be use to create some plastics, paints, it can produce ammonia for fertilizers and hydrogen. Natural gas is widely available. Natural gas is lighter than air, if there is a leak, it is likely that it will dissipate and it is less likely to create an explosion when compare to propane gas that is much heavier than air. Natural gas is another type of fossil fuel, which means it is non-renewable and still releases carbon dioxide (CO2). Need long pipelines, need big tankers on land and sea for transportation. Need specialized fuel tank in vehicles for transport that carries some safety concerns. The long pipes disrupt the ecosystems. Natural gas is cleaner than coal and gasoline but it is still releasing carbon dioxide that contributes to global warming. It can be expensive to use natural gas if your home is not properly insulated. Some electrical appliances need high voltage which are expensive to install and dangerous. If there is a leak, it may cause fire or explosion. In some areas, methane excess from natural gas is burn into the atmosphere because it is uneconomical to transport to external markets. When using natural gas in cars or trucks, the mileage from natural gas is lower than gasoline.

Resources:


natural gas... natural gas has many uses, it can heat a building, generate ele ctricity, provides heat and power to industry and vehicles and is also a feedstock in the manufacture of products, such as fertilizer. natural gas is a naturally occurring hydrocarbon gas, primarily methane, with 20% concentration of other hydro carbons (usually ethane) with small amounts of impurities such as carbon dioxide. natural gas is located deep under the earths surface. natural rock formations are associated with other hydrocarbon reservoirs, in coal beds. most natural gas was created by methanogenic organisms in marshes, bogs, and landfills. before natural gas can be used as a fuel, it must go through processing to clean the gas and remove unwanted materials including water in order to be marketable gas.

This website shows you where gas is found in the earth and how natural gas began this video is about how natural gas is affordable and abundant and all the things that other people say, and it shows how to drill to underground and what water and gas do then Natural Gas is America's New Energy Frontier New technologies creating new energy. Technological innovation has opened the door to abundant new energy resources in the U.S. We now have over a 100-year supply of clean-burning natural gas that we didn’t know about just a few years ago. The natural gas industry supports nearly 3 million jobs and adds more than $385 billion to the national economy. And this is just the beginning. From the coalbed methane natural gas found throughout the Mountain West, to the shale gas formations along the Northeast’s Appalachian Basin, to the deep water of the Gulf of Mexico, to the vast potential of the Arctic and other offshore resources, we have enough natural gas to keep America going strong into the next century. By Jakob Where does Natural Gas come from? Natural Gas is often discovered when drilling for oil as it is found beneath the earth’s surface. When organic matter is exposed to extreme heat and undergoes intense pressure for long periods of time the carbon bonds break down and form deposits of oil and natural gas. Due to the difference in its density, natural gas will rest on top of the oil in the deposit. Natural gas can also be found alone and special equipment exists to locate possible sources of natural gas. Companies then drill down and extract the gas using special mining equipment. Once the gas is mined it is them piped to the end user. In many countries there are long pipelines that carry the gas from the source to the refinery or power plant. Natural Gas can also be shipped to huge gas refineries on land. I got this information from this website this webside tells what natural gas is and what it is mad up of .

sformation from animal or plant into gaseous substance began millions of years ago, when, according to the U.S. Energy Information Administration, sand and silt built up over layers of decomposed organic matter. As the silt and sand turned to rock, heat and pressure slowly transformed some of the solid material into natural gas. Natural gas is a significant power source; it heats homes, fuels vehicles and stoves, and produces electricity. Despite its numerous uses, natural gas does have some disadvantages.
Air Pollution ---- While natural gas doesn't emit the same amount of greenhouse gases as other fossil fuels, it does release carbon dioxide, a greenhouse gas. An excess of greenhouse gases in the atmosphere further expedites the rate at which the planet grows warmer, according to the Environmental Protection Agency (EPA). In addition to its negative effect on the atmosphere, natural gas production, storage and shipping poses a threat to the environment. Small amounts of methane, another greenhouse gas, may escape during these processes.
Carbon Monoxide Poisoning ---- Malfunctioning natural gas furnaces may emit poisonous carbon monoxide gas. When individuals inhale carbon monoxide it deprives them of necessary oxygen. Sustained exposure to carbon monoxide will incapacitate, and eventually kill, an individual. Have a licensed repair technician inspect your natural gas-burning heaters and appliances every year to ensure the gas is burning properly. Install carbon monoxide detectors throughout your home, and check often to make sure they are functioning properly. Avoid heating your house with a gas oven or your bedroom with a gas or kerosene space heater. These preventative measures will reduce your risk of carbon monoxide exposure from natural gas heaters and appliances.
Gas Leaks ---- Gas line leaks in commercial and residential settings don't happen too often, but when they do, they pose a significant threat. When a large amount of gas collects in an enclosed area, it may lead to an explosion. Additionally, individuals exposed to the buildup may become ill. Before distributing it to consumers, natural gas suppliers add a scent to the odorless gas. This smell, which the Ohio Public Utilities Commission Website compares to rotten eggs, is meant to alert individuals to any gas leakage. Regular inspections and proper gas line installation help prevent gas leaks from occurring.
Water Pollution -----In recent years, studies have shown that the process gas companies use to drill may contaminate nearby water sources. The process, known as hydraulic fracturing, injects highly pressurized sand and drilling fluid into the ground. In a 2009 study, the EPA found that 11 out of 29 wells located near a natural gas drilling site in Wyoming contained traces of harmful materials, including heavy metals, oil and gas. In March 2010 the EPA announced it would begin an extensive study of the impact hydraulic fracturing may have on the environment and on human health.

Interesting article:Natural Gas
Company that provides gas plants that are used to recover saleable hydrocarbon liquids from gas streams and supply usable gas


Non-renewable natural resources are listed as:
fossil fuels, oil, coal, copper, diamonds, natural
gas, iron ore, minerals, gold, silver, platinum,
rocks, and many more. (that is one bad thing
about natural gas we need to know about)

Natural Gas And The Environment
http://www.naturalgas.org/environment/naturalgas.asp

Natural gas is a combustible mixture of hydrocarbon gases.
While natural gas is formed primarily of methane, it can also
include ethane, propane, butane and pentane.
The composition of natural gas can vary widely,
but below is a chart outlining the typical makeup o
f natural gas before it is refined.
