    Believe it or not, burning up all that gas is actually environmentally better than the prior practices.  They used to just vent all that methane into the air when they opened up new wells.

    So burning up more of the methane is an improvement, although the greenhouse gas emissions from the gas fields are still a painfully odious problem.

     The natural gas processing plants produce a near-pure CO2 exhaust that should be utilized, and removed from the environment.

    Orly, it isn't evidence just because you downloaded it from the internet.
