Natural gas is the cleanest-burning fossil fuel. When put to its highest and best use, natural gas reduces major sources of air pollution by lessening the need to generate additional electricity at coal-and oil-burning boiler plants. Unlike other fossil fuels, natural gas combustion produces none of the sulphur dioxide that causes acid rain and significantly less greenhouse gas than either coal or oil. Further, there are virturally no particulate emissions from gas combustion.
