Is LNG Diesel clean fuel?

    There are two sides to this story – on one hand, natural gas plants DO emit 50% less CO2 than coal plants, ostensibly making all natural gas (including Liquefied Natural Gas – natural gas that has been condensed to liquid form to decrease density for transport) clean fuel.  On the other hand, once you factor in the LIFE CYCLE of the LNG, the bad (greenhouse gas emissions) ends up far outweighing the good.

    Liquified Natural Gas by itself is a clean fuel.  But condensing the natural gas to liquid emits greenhouse gases.  Transporting the LNG emits greenhouse gases.  Converting the liquified gas back to gaseous state emits greenhouse gases.  Get the idea?  It ends up not being a clean fuel at all.
