Stanford launches major new natural gas research initiative

Green Car Congress

Compared with burning coal, natural gas emits about half the carbon dioxide and substantially less soot, mercury and sulfur. Jackson, a member of the Earth System Science Department, has mapped thousands of natural gas leaks across city streets in Boston and Washington, DC, and published the first studies of hydraulic fracturing’s impact on drinking water. Stanford University has launched a new research initiative to study comprehensively the development and use of natural gas.
