Overview

"In this expose, author Julian Darley takes a careful look at natural gas as an energy source that rapidly went from nuisance to crutch, and outlines why it has the potential to cause environmental, political, and economic devastation. Darley traces our dependence on natural gas and scrutinizes the implications of that demand." In High Noon for Natural Gas, readers will find a critical analysis of government policy on energy, as well as an unprecedented breakdown of the modern energy crisis.

Editorial Reviews

J.C. Comer

Choice-
Darley, an environmental researcher in the UK, offers a fresh look at a fuel that is widely misunderstood. Although it is essentially methane, natural gas has been considered a waste byproduct, a prime fuel, a major source for fertilizer, a political football, and a short- or a long-term solution for the energy problem. The author assesses each of these conflicting views and shows the economic, environmental, and political dilemmas that must be reconciled. The electric power industry embraced gas to rid itself of the problems inherent with coal. Environmentalists were impressed with how clean natural gas burned. Economists liked the low relative costs. These are all flawed conclusions, and this author's thesis is that a massive worldwide conservation effort is the only viable future course of action. Given the world's political jumble, he is not hopeful. Extensive notes are included. Summing Up: Recommended. All levels.

From the Publisher

"What's that hissing sound? Worried about oil running out? Don't look now, but natural gas is next on the endangered hydrocarbons list."--Salon.com
