Here is the problem with pretending something that exists doesn't. You run yourself around making excuses and doing verbal gymnastics, and all to deny reality.
    You drink sea water? Its a pollutant abet one that occurs naturally with great frequency.

    Just have to mention, that water you drink from the tap? It has deer pee and fish poop in it.

    There's no "slick". Natural gas is a gas, not a liquid.

    There are "condensates" in gas wells and usually condensate tanks on wells to collect those gases that condense during wellhead production. Benzene is an example and would create a sheen like gasoline. Natural gas is "mixed methane gases" and not some pure singular gas. Wells are relatively clean, not clean.

    Right, however, it's not going the create a slick like a blown out oil well would produce.

    There are many different factors which would determine the amount of condesates that get released. Condesates aren't slways consisyant from resevoir to resevoir.

    A "National Policy", eh? And who do you suppose would create and enforce such a policy? The Market? I don't think so, or we would be seeing more of this green energy being produced. No, such a policy can only come about if the government creates and enforces it. Then we will have what always happens when the government sticks it's nose into things that should be controlled by the Market...higher costs and lower supply. And who bears the brunt of those higher costs and lower supply? The consumer.

    Do you REALLY want to place that kind of burden on the People? Just to implement your beloved "Green Energy"?

    No thanks.

    There is enough energy in the winds and the tides to power the world too. For energy to be effective it must not only be produced but be transmitted/transported to where the demand for it exists. Absolutely noone is stopping you from doing your fantastic "green" energy thing - flood the grid with your cheaper energy.
