December 7, 2009

WASHINGTON, Dec. 7 /PRNewswire-USNewswire/ — Today, the U.S. Environmental Protection Agency released its endangerment finding. The following statement is from America’s Natural Gas Alliance (ANGA) President and CEO Regina Hopper:

“ANGA supports the nation’s goal of reducing greenhouse gas emissions in the United States and around the world, and we believe that natural gas can play a critical role in advancing solutions that are favorable to our nation’s economy, energy security and low-carbon future.”

“As the Administration prepares for Copenhagen and as the regulatory and legislative process moves forward, we would like to remind the Administration and Congress of the important role that natural gas should play in any climate strategy to reduce greenhouse gas emissions. With recent discoveries and technological breakthroughs, the U.S. now has abundant, homegrown supplies of natural gas that can meet our nation’s energy needs for generations to come. Clean, abundant natural gas is critical to reducing America’s carbon footprint. It can be immediately dispatched using existing infrastructure to produce meaningful carbon reductions in electricity generation. It can deliver emission reductions in heavy fleet vehicles in the transportation sector, and it supports the integration of renewable energy.”

“Today, domestic natural gas plays a key role in meeting U.S. energy demands, and it must play a key part in addressing climate change. ANGA will continue to work with policymakers to find credible solutions that will reduce greenhouse gas emissions, promote a strong economy, and increase our energy security.”
