3. How is cheap natural gas a plus for the environment?

It releases CO2, as well, just less of it than gasoline, diesel fuel and coal; it's marginally "greener" by some metrics but it's a hell of a long way from carbon neutral (and replacing coal with natural gas for electric power generation would have the same longterm climate effects).
