What's Cooking with Natural Gas? - Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming - 2008-07-30 - The Select Committee on Energy Independence and Global Warming held a hearing on what role natural gas can play in a climate-friendly energy future on Wednesday July 30, 2008. Natural gas plays a critical role in numerous sectors of our economy from home heating to chemical production to electricity generation to transportation fuel. With 3.4 percent of global natural gas reserves, the United States has the fifth largest reserves in the world. Since a low in 1986, domestic consumption of natural gas has generally increased and its uses have broadened. Natural gas has especially become popular as a cleaner alternative to coal in the electrical utility sector and gasoline and diesel in the transportation sector. As Congress considers energy policies that will increase our energy independence and help solve global warming, understanding the role of natural gas in our economy and how it might contribute to energy policies is critical. WITNESS LIST: Aubrey McClendon, CEO, Chesapeake Energy; Clay Harris, CEO, Suez LNG North America; David Manning, Executive VP, National Grid; Rich Wells, Vice President Energy, The Dow Chemical Company; John German, Manager Environmental and Energy Analysis, American Honda; Mark Smith, Executive Director, Independent Petroleum Association of Mountain States. Video provided by the U.S. House of Representatives.
