Don 'tyou wish we couldjust do this to acid rain. In a way we can-if more industrial and power plants switch to natural gas. Natural gas is playing a key role in industry's compliance with the Clean Air Act Amendments and our governments plans for a cleaner future. It should play a key role in your company's future, too. Natural gas power plants can produce 99% less sulfur dioxide and 90% less nitrogen oxide than oil or coal-fired plants. And paired with the advances in equipment technology, in most cases, natural gas is the most efficient, cost-effective energy around. Plus, there's a secure and steady supply of gas; over 99% of the gas we use comes from North America, and more than a million miles of pipeline coast to coast delivers it easily If more industrial and power plants switch to natural gas, we'll help wipe away acid rain, instead of wiping away our environment. Clean, economicalnaturalgas. Think what we 'llsave.
