The Fading Crisis of Carbon Dioxide Emissions

The most likely explanation for the decline is the shale gas revolution, made possible by hydraulic fracturing, or fracking.

Increasingly, power plants are turning to natural gas because it has become abundant, and therefore cheap. And though technology is improving our ability to reduce emissions from coal usage, natural gas is still a much cleaner source.

You don’t hear about this in the media because that story just doesn’t fit the left’s mantra that traditional energy sources are destroying the environment.
