NATURAL GAS SUPPLIES ENERGY NEEDS

Can you imagine living without a gas stove or oven? International experts estimate that more than 1.2 billion people around the world lack access to electricity and 2.7 billion live without clean cooking facilities. There can be serious consequences for their health and the environment.*

Exposure to indoor air pollution from biomass is estimated to cause about as many deaths as malaria, tuberculosis or HIV/AIDS per year. *

Malaria
855 thousand
Smoke from biomass
1.3 million
Tuberculosis
1.4 million
HIV/Aids
1.3 Million


In rural Africa, women and children are responsible for collecting the fuel for cooking. *

What was the average distance walked to collect that fuel in Singida, Tanzania in 2006?

Unfortunately, women and children walk many miles to get fuel, exposing themselves to several hazards along the way.

Unfortunately, 2.5 billion people still rely on wood and charcoal for cooking. The good news is, cooking with natural gas is much more efficient and cheaper. And the farther we push natural gas technology here in America, the more we can help in developing countries. *
