Questions To Ask About Natural Gas * QUESTIONS WE WOULD ASK: What’s the role of natural gas over the next few years, and should the federal government or the states regulate fracking? What new programs, if any, would you implement to promote renewable energy? What’s the next step for cars – electric vehicles, natural gas, increased fuel standards? What will you do about upcoming international climate talks to reduce greenhouse gases? Is there any program the federal government can or should use to lower greenhouse gas emissions successfully – cap and trade, clean energy standard, carbon tax?
