A Quiz: China Discovers Huge Natural Gas Reserve — Will They Tap It….?

By October 24, 2006Energy

Here’s a brain teaser for you. According to this article, China yesterday discovered its second biggest natural gas field with reserves of over 150 billion cubic meters. This, of course, is a fraction of the 420 trillion cubic feet of natural gas that we have here in the US. As you know, 85% of it is subject to a federal moratorium.

So here’s the quiz question for today: To the nearest full percent, what percent of this 150 billion cubic meters of natural gas do you suppose the Chinese will subject to a moratorium and thus declare off limits? Click on the “Comment” button below to register your guess.

Oh, and while folks are out in your towns campaigning, ask them what they plan to do to let us tap our own resources.
