Cleaner Air and a Better Future
Natural gas is making the air cleaner, while supporting nearly 3 million U.S. jobs and contributing over $300 billion to the national economy each year.
Because of natural gas development, our country has seen an energy renaissance that is creating a cleaner environment while bringing us reliable, affordable electricity to power our lives and secure our future.
Natural gas is also contributing to a global transformation. Over the past three decades, natural gas has helped 1.3 billion people worldwide get electricity and escape debilitating poverty.
Thanks to natural gas, we’re also making tremendous environmental progress. Carbon and other emissions are at their lowest levels in 25 years because of clean energy technologies and the increased use of natural gas. Natural gas is also making renewable energy like wind and solar possible. It’s the leading source of backup power and used to manufacture the technology.

The best way to determine if a new technology is sustainable, is to let it live or die according to the decisions of a free people spending their own money in a free marketplace. This is the only way we will identify truly sustainable renewable fuels to power our economy.

I have experienced damage to my outboard motor and chainsaw caused by ethanol. Ethanol increases both the cost of fuel in my car and the cost of food on my family’s table. Now some want to increase the government mandate and require we use more ethanol. We should be ending the mandate, not expanding it!”
I think natural gas is something that we’re realizing, more and more, that if you bring it in, you can do a lot with it.”
I don’t think that energy is a partisan issue – the use of natural gas should be in everyone’s best interest.
Frequently Asked Questions
How do natural gas and renewables work together?
Natural gas makes renewable energy like wind and solar possible. It’s the leading source of backup power and used to manufacture the technology.
How is natural gas helping the environment?
With an American supply of clean-burning and affordable natural gas, electricity is being produced cleaner and more efficiently, helping to make our air cleaner by bringing carbon emissions to the lowest they’ve been in 25 years.
Can we limit fossil fuel production altogether and only rely on wind and solar energy?
We can’t have renewable energy without natural gas and oil. Fossil fuels are essential in the building of renewable energy and providing critical baseload “always on” and flexible energy that makes electricity from wind and solar possible. Traditional energy sources like natural gas provide energy when the sun doesn’t shine and the wind doesn’t blow. In fact, because of its versatility, natural gas is the leading source of power used to balance wind generation.
