The Optimism on Gas
-
There is so much natural gas that there is enough available to, according to one researcher, "displace half of the coal burning power
 plants [in the United States] by 2020” (Pickens Plan, 2012)
 -
“We have the domestic natural gas necessary to fuel our trucks and  fleet vehicles…” (Pickens Plan, 2012)
 
-
Studies from prestigious energy research firms and universities haveaffirmed that the dream of clean, abundant, home grown energy is nowreality, with the help of shale gas. (ANGA, 2012).
-
“I believe U.S. natural gas producers can increase supplies by 5% per 
 year for at least the next decade and that assumes there is no more
access to public lands and waters than there is today.” (Testimony to
Congress, Aubrey McClendon, July 30, 2008). [63% compounded]
