By replacing petroleum products and coal, natural gas helps to reduce greenhouse gases by 32%. Natural gas emits significantly fewer atmospheric pollutants and makes it possible to eliminate nearly all sulfur oxides (SOx) and nitrogen oxides (NOx), pollutants which are, among other things, responsible for acid rain and health problems.
