Update on Clearing the Air about Liquid Natural Gas

I can admit when I have made a “significant error.” Liquid natural gas (LNG) and gas to liquid (GTL) are different. According to the Center of Liquified Natural Gas, “LNG is natural gas in liquid form.” GTL converts gas to a liquid form using a chemical reaction known as the Fischer-Tropsch process.
Just to clarify so no one can make faulty assumptions on my position concerning using natural gas as transportation fuel, I will spell it out in plain language. I am opposed to the use of natural gas, in any form, as a transportation fuel for one main reason: it is a fossil fuel. As a fossil fuel, natural gas is not renewable. One day it will run out. As an advertisement for an oil company proclaims, “The future is in renewable energy.”
