Gas/No Gas

Paul liked the juxtaposition of the IJ's two main articles Friday: CU to cut emissions by 28% by moving from coal to natural gas vs. drilling protests planned. They quote natural resources prof Tim Fahey:
"I try to emphasize to my students that there's no such thing as environmentally friendly sources of power," Fahey said. "What there is, is comparative risks ... What we know for sure about energy sources is that the cheapest source of power is coal, but it's also the most risk-intensive."
