Would we be better off if we could ditch coal for natural gas?

    In the short term, yes.  Natural gas combined cycle plants have overall higher efficiency than coal-fired plants, and produce half as much carbon dioxide.  But they do still have high emissions of greenhouse gases and other pollutants.  Renewable energies should be our long term goal.

    We would be slightly better off. Natural gas is a little bit cleaner than coal as it produces less carbon dioxide per amount of electricity produced and contains less of other pollutants such as oxides of nitrogen and sulfur. In addition, it would stop the extremely destructive mountaintop mining practices. However, don’t forget that it’s still a fossil fuel, with the associated greenhouse gas emissions and limited, non-renewable supplies.

    As others mentioned already, it would benefit the environment, but it would not solve our energy and emission problems in the long run.

    If you want to buy a car, you would have to get the loans. Moreover, my brother commonly utilizes a small business loan, which seems to be really firm.
