The link provided was not to encourage using up the natural gas; only presented it as info. Most energy experts know we will have to rely on a variety of resources for our current and future energy needs; not just one or two.

That 85 year figure reminds me of the WE ARE OUT OF CRUDE OIL NOW in the 1980's.

The San Francisco Bay delta holds so much natural gas they are not drilling for fresh water anymore despite the incursion of salt water upriver. Once a high pressure well has been drilled and then capped, it becomes the responsibility of the mineral rights owner forever. If it blows, they will need to flare it unless they can cap it again.

Too bad it isn't propane or butane which is a hundred times cleaner. An unvented natural gas heater (like in a giant warehouse) gags and stings the eyes.

It's a challenge to get enthusiastic about green when the Chinese are building dozens and dozens of new coal generation plants while declaring they will be phased out [emoticon]

Where does the wind blow consistently on a hot summer's night?

That trait would be worth its weight in platinum. The onshore breeze dies at sundown here. I pencilled out a 930 kWh solar platform (30 days). It's depressing the cost of 12-hours of energy storage.

Has a wind farm been hit with a tornado yet? I wonder how well those 120 ft. blades fare in a tornado.
