Australia needs more gas, and illogical blockers to its development should be removed. So says the world’s foremost energy authority, the International Energy Agency, in its latest report on Australia’s energy future.
Natural gas will be a growing part of the world’s energy mix for decades to come, according to the latest analysis by the International Energy Agency. In fact the IEA expects natural gas use to increase by 45% between now and 2040.
Anti-gas activists are fond of claiming that gas fields leak like a sieve and that the ‘fugitive’ methane negates the carbon emission benefits of using natural gas for power generation.
